Recap: Richmond vs. Charlotte

Brooklyn, NY (Sports Network) - Richmond lost its cool and Charlotte advanced.

Pierria Henry hit eight free throws on Charlotte's final possession and the 49ers downed Richmond, 68-63, in the first round of the Atlantic 10 Tournament.

The Spiders were called for three technical fouls in the final 4.7 seconds.

With Charlotte (21-10) trailing 63-60, the Spiders elected to foul instead of allowing a potentially game-tying 3-pointer. Henry sunk the first of the one- and-one, but Richmond's Derrick Williams was called for a technical foul after pushing a 49ers player following the first foul shot.

So instead of having to miss intentionally for a potentially game-tying bucket, Charlotte had three more foul shots and the ball.

Henry then proceeded to make all three for a 64-63 49ers lead. Spiders head coach Chris Mooney disagreed with the officials about the prior calls and was ejected. Henry, who finished with 28 points and 12 rebounds, sunk four more free throws to seal the win.

Cedrick Lindsay had 19 points to lead Richmond (18-14), which took a 31-23 lead into the break.

Charlotte, which will play Saint Louis Friday in the quarterfinals, outscored the Spiders 45-32 in the second half.
