49ers win

SAN ANTONIO  — Jon Davis scored five points in the final five seconds, including the winning 3-pointer at the buzzer, and Charlotte beat Texas-San Antonio 76-75 on Thursday night.

Davis and Braxton Ogbueze scored 17 points apiece, Anthony Vanhook added 16 with nine rebounds and five assists and Andrien White had 10 points for Charlotte (13-15, 7-10 Conference USA).

Jeff Beverly scored six points during a 13-1 run that gave UTSA a seven-point lead with 6:22 remaining and a layup by Nick Allen extended the lead 70-62 about two minutes later. Vanhook made a layup and Ogbueze hit a 3 before back-to-back jumpers by Quentin Jackson and White put the 49ers up 71-70.

But buckets by Giovanni De Nicolao and George Willborn III made it 74-71 with eight seconds left. Davis hit two free throws and then — after Beverly hit 1 of 2 foul shots a second later — took the inbound pass, raced down court and pulled up for an NBA-range 3 to win it.

Beverly scored 14 and De Nicolao scored 12 for UTSA (12-18, 7-10), which has lost four of its last five games.

Davis’ 3 at the buzzer lifts Charlotte over UTSA, 76-75
