Sophomore guard Jahmir Young led the way for Charlotte with his 27 points and the Niners shot a red-hot 59.6 percent from the field as a team. Senior big man Milos Supica turned in a nice game with 14 points and a team-high 11 rebounds, while sophomore guard Brice Williams rounded out double-figure scoring for Charlotte with 13.

Proud of our efforts,” NCAT head coach Will Jones said after the game. “We are improving. Next thing we need is a breakthrough and I think it’s coming soon!”

The loss drops  NCAT to 3-8 on the season. It has one more non-conference matchup left when it faces its closest rival, UNC Greensboro on Tuesday.
