CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charlotte and the Halton Arena may house some of the toughest fans in the Atlantic 10.
Fans behind the GW bench employed techniques that should be considered cruel and unusual punishments to any human being. 49er fans started off by telling seniors Mike Hall and Pops Mensah-Bonsu – who both considered going professional last year – that they don’t belong in the NBA but proceeded to tell them several times that they should go back to the pros.
Coach Karl Hobbs, who sported a purple shirt, was chided for the article of clothing on top of everything else he did during the game. When he was shouting commands to his squad, which was up 14 points at several junctures, the fans reminded him that “no one cares.”
