That aside, was a great game to be at. Hasn't been much to get excited about in Niner Nation this season, but this was certainly a nice pick me up. Injuries have devastated this team this season.
Dijuan Harris is the best PG in the nation that nobody has ever heard of. He was 5th in assists heading into the game and added another 10 tonight which should put him at an average of 7 per game for the season. With the injured players returning next season and the new guys we have coming in, his numbers should be even better.
Shamari Spears was a solid contributor at Boston College, Chris Braswell is a top 100 player, and KJ Sherrill has catapulted himself into being considered one of NC's top 5 players, so the interior players should be fun to watch next season.

As for recruits, we have good guys coming in next season, but still need a backup PG. Our backup (if you want call him that since they were essentially splitting minutes last season) quit on us a few weeks before the season started leaving us with only one real PG. Our emergency backup then went out with a torn ACL and PCL, so now we have nobody. The backup behind that guy broke a knee cap before the season even started, so we lost our backup emergency PG who was also supposed to be our starting SG. He lead us in scoring in a preseason tournament in Canada and was expected to put up pretty good numbers. After he went down, we had only one true SG and he's average at best (although he looked good tonight with 16 points).
For those unfamiliar with Bobby Lutz basketball, Charlotte-Shooting Guard=bad season
