Menís Hoops Announced 2016-17 Conference USA Schedule

The Conference USA portion of the Charlotte 49ers 2016-17 schedule has been released, as announced by head coach Mark Price and the Conference USA office.

The 18-game league schedule, which features nine home and nine away games, begins on New Year's Eve as the 49ers play North Texas in Halton Arena. 

Charlotte plays five Conference USA opponents twice over the course of the league schedule as the 49ers have both home and away games against Marshall (January 7 and February 25), North Texas (December 31 and January 26), Old Dominion (January 21 and February 18), Rice (January 2 and January 28) and WKU (January 5 and February 23).

The remainder of the Conference USA schedule features home games against Louisiana Tech (January 12), Southern Miss (January 14), Florida Atlantic (February 2) and FIU (February 4) and road games at reigning Conference USA regular-season champs UAB (February 9) and reigning Conference USA tournament champs Middle Tennessee (February 11). The 49ers finish off the regular-season with a road trip to Texas to play UTSA (March 2) and UTEP (March 4).

UAB and the city of Birmingham will also serve as the host for the Conference USA Tournament for the third straight season. The 2017 championship will be held March 8-11 in Legacy Arena. 

Coach Price and the 49ers welcome back six letterwinners led by guards senior Braxton Ogbueze (14.5 ppg) and sophomores Jon Davis (11.7 ppg) and Andrien White (10.7 ppg).

The non-conference portion of the Charlotte 49ers schedule will be released at a later date once it is finalized.
