    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Leemire Goldwire scored a career-high 30 points to lead Charlotte in a 80-57 victory over Dayton on Wednesday night.

    Carlos Williams and De'Angelo Alexander had 13 points each and E.J. Drayton added 11 for the 49ers (8-8, 2-2 Atlantic 10), who won their second consecutive league game. Charlotte finished with 11 3-pointers.

    Brian Roberts had 18 points and Monty Scott 13 for the Flyers (12-5, 2-2), who could not overcome 38 percent shooting in suffering their worst defeat since a 30-point loss to then-No. 2 North Carolina on Dec. 31.

    Goldwire, whose previous career best was 26 points, scored 24 points in the final eight minutes of the first half as the 49ers (8-8, 2-2 Atlantic 10) raced out to a 22-point halftime lead.

    Charlotte led 18-11 with 7:53 left in the half when Goldwire went to work. He hit six 3-pointers -- including a desperation heave over 6-foot-10 Dayton center Kurt Huelsman as the buzzer sounded -- and went 6-for-6 from the free throw line as the 49ers went up 50-28 at the break.

    Charlotte hit eight consecutive 3-pointers during that 32-17 run, and made 10-of-13 3s in the first 20 minutes as the 49ers shot 60.9 percent in the half.

    Charlotte got off to a slow start in the opening minutes of the second half, allowing the Flyers to pull within 14 points twice, the last time at 56-42 on Scott's jumper with 13:25 remaining.

    But the 49ers responded with an 11-4 run, with Courtney Williams hitting a pair of free throws to put Charlotte ahead 67-46 with 7:37 left, and Dayton couldn't pull any closer than 17 points.
