Recap: Charlotte vs. Texas State

Anchorage, AK (Sports Network) - Chris Braswell came off the bench to score 18 points and grab eight rebounds to help lead the Charlotte 49ers to a 73-64 win over the Texas State Bobcats in the first round of the Great Alaska Shootout at the Sullivan Arena.

Also having a strong game for the 49ers (4-0) was Pierria Henry with 12 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists and three steals, while Denzel Ingram and DeMario Mayfield accounted for 11 and 10 points, respectively.

The Bobcats (2-2) were paced by Wesley Davis who tallied 15 points, Matt Staff chipped in 14 and Joel Wright 13 points in the setback.

A tight game throughout, the first half experienced three ties and 13 lead changes before Charlotte claimed a 29-28 edge at the break. Both teams shot less than 39 percent from the field in the period.

In the second half a Braswell free throw with 8:34 to play gave Charlotte a double-digit advantage, but a 12-2 run by the Bobcats pushed them ahead by a basket with just over five minutes remaining. Unfortunately, from there Texas State fell silent as the 49ers closed with an 11-0 run of their own.

In a game that was filled with turnovers, Charlotte with 22 and the Bobcats 20, the 49ers managed to pull off the win despite shooting just 13-of-28 at the free-throw line.

With the win, Charlotte now prepares to take on Oral Roberts in the semifinals on Friday, while the Bobcats go up against Loyola Marymount.
