Charlotte, N.C. - Behind four players in double-figures led by Austin Ajukwa's double-double with a career-high 30 points and 11 rebounds, the Charlotte 49ers (11-11, C-USA: 5-6) defeated FIU (5-18, C-USA: 1-9), 95-80, in Halton Arena.

"Good bounce back win for us tonight after a tough disappointing two-point loss on Thursday," Charlotte coach Mark Price said. "It's always a challenge with a young team to be able to overcome disappointments but we just talked about getting better every time we step on the court that's got to be our goal. We didn't have as many breakdowns tonight that was a goal. Doing the little things that has been kind of a theme for the last couple of days, we have to get better at doing the little things and I thought overall we did that. We won the rebounding battle tonight. I really thought all of our guys fought hard on the glass all night long and that was a big reason why we were able to win."

Ajukwa recorded his second double-double of the season with his 30 points and 11 rebounds. Ajukwa was 13-for-16 from the field and 3-for-5 from beyond the three-point line. Jon Davis recorded his 10th 20-point scoring game of the season with 26 points He scored 18 points in the second half. He was 9-for-9 from the free throw line increasing his consecutive free throws made streak to 19 straight. Davis tallied six assists. Braxton Ogbueze connected on five three-point field goals for 17 points for his 12th double-figure scoring game of the season. Andrien White recorded his 13th double-figure scoring game of the season with 16 points including going 6-for-6 from the free throw line.

Donte McGill led three FIU players in double-figures with 27 points.

The 49ers finished the game with a 30-27 advantage on the boards. For the eighth time this season, Charlotte scored at least 50 points in a half with a 52 points second half scoring outburst. The 49ers connected on 11 three-point field goals which marks the 10th time this season that the 49ers have connected on double-figure threes.

With the game tied at eight just four minutes into the game, Charlotte behind a three by Ogbueze and a layup by Davis gave the 49ers a five point lead five minutes into the game. Charlotte maintained a lead of 1-5 points for the next seven minutes until FIU tied the score at 22 when McGill scored inside at the 8:10 mark. Then, the 49ers went on a 9-0 run capped off by a layup by Ajukwa which gave the 49ers the lead for good with 5:53 left in the first half. Najee Garvin scored four points during the 49ers run.

Charlotte pushed their first half lead to 13 points on a couple of occasions. The 49ers enjoyed a 43-33 halftime lead.

With the 49ers leading 50-37 with 17:26 left in the second half, FIU went on a 15-3 run over the next three minutes cutting the 49ers lead to 53-52 when Anthony Boswell knocked down a jumper in the lane with 13:35 on the clock.

Charlotte answered the FIU run with an 11-2 run over the next four minutes regaining control of the game, 65-54, with 8:53 left in the second half. Davis, Ajukwa, and Ogbueze scored during the 49ers run. FIU cut Charlotte's lead to seven points a couple times but that would be as close as they would get to the 49ers.
