IT WAS OVER WHEN: A late surge from Western Kentucky cut the deficit to two points with less than a minute left to play, but 6-of-8 shooting from Charlotte and solid shooting from the 49ers at the free throw line proved to be too much for the Tops’ to handle. The Hilltoppers additionally missed a game-changing three-pointer and layup with less than 10 seconds to play. Another factor that contributed to the loss was a 9-0 run for Charlotte in the second half. During the final frame, Western Kentucky was held to no points from the field for almost four minutes.

HE STOLE THE SHOW: WKU senior guard Jordan Rawls was explosive all night long, coming off the bench to lead the Hilltoppers with 25 points, one rebound, two assists and one steal. Rawls sank several key shots, finding success from field goal range with 9-of-13 shooting from the field, 2-of-3 shooting from beyond the arc and 5-of-6 shooting from the free throw line.

THE STAT DOESN’T LIE: Despite scoring 10 points off turnovers, Western Kentucky was unable to compete with Charlotte’s stellar shooting. The 49ers shot 56% (29-52) from the field, 40% (8-20) from beyond the arc and 69% (9-13) from the free throw line. The Hilltoppers went almost four minutes without making a field goal in the second half, shooting 41% (24-58) from field goal range, 28% (7-25) from three-point range and 84% (16-19) from the free throw line.
