A balanced attack, including a 37-3 advantage in bench scoring, propelled Charlotte to an 80-68 victory over East Carolina Wednesday night in Halton Arena.

Senior point guard DiJuan Harris scored 17 points, junior forward Shamari Spears had 12, junior center Phil Jones added 10 and seven of their teammates — each recording at least 11 minutes of playing time — contributed points to help the 49ers win the first matchup between the schools since Charlotte departed Conference USA for the Atlantic 10 in 2005.

Junior guard Brock Young scored 24 points, junior guard Jontae Sherrod added 13 and junior center Chad Wynn contributed 10 for East Carolina (3-5).

The 49ers (5-1) led 46-33 at halftime. At other points in the game, they led by as much as 18 points in the first half and 19 points in the second frame.

Charlotte prevailed in most statistical categories. An exception was the battle of the boards, where East Carolina edged the 49ers 41-38.

The Pirates return home where they will host Coker Saturday night at 7 p.m.
