When: November 21, 2013 | 9:30 a.m. CST

Where: San Juan, Puerto Rico | Coliseo Roberto Clemente

Media: 1350 KMAN | ESPNU

Charlotte comes into this contest 146th in Ken Pomeroy's rankings. The 49ers are 2-1 this season, with wins over Elon and East Tennessee State. Alan Major's team lost on the road last week to College of Charleston.

Charlotte is about average in offensive efficiency (102.9 points per 100 possessions) and plays at a very high tempo (76.9 possessions per game, sixth nationally). They turn the ball over a little too much and allow their opponents to shoot better than 52.1 percent eFG%. They're also terrible at shooting three-point shots (23.7 percent).

Go Cats!
