Recap: Rhode Island vs. Charlotte

Kingston, RI (Sports Network) - Willie Clayton recorded a double-double with 11 points and a game-high 13 rebounds as he helped led the Charlotte 49ers to a 58-50 win over the Rhode Island Rams in Atlantic 10 Conference play at the Ryan Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the 49ers (14-2, 2-0 A-10) was DeMario Mayfield who tallied a game-high 17 points off the bench, while Pierria Henry responded with six points and 10 boards in the team's third straight win.
