Florida Atlantic v Charlotte

Charlotte’s 8-1 start to conference play is as big a surprise as anything we’ve seen in local or national college basketball this season, and tonight they put that record on the line at South Florida, who is also 8-1 in the AAC. Unlike FAU or Memphis, the only way Charlotte will hear their name called on Selection Sunday is if they win the AAC Tournament next month after a slow start in non-conference play eliminated any chance at being an at-large bid. A win tonight would further help their chances of being the #1 seed in that event, making the path easier to winning three games in three days.

Hunter Bailey covers the 49ers athletic department for The Charlotte Observer, and earlier today, he joined the Wes & Walker Show, to talk about the success Aaron Fearne has enjoyed as the interim head coach, what his future looks like on the Charlotte sidelines, and more importantly, previews tonight’s all-important game, as Charlotte is playing in their biggest game in well over a decade.

You can listen to the Wes & Walker Show, every weekday from 12-3 PM, on Sports Radio 92.7 WFNZ, and the WFNZ app.
