DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Pierria Henry buried a baseline jumper and then hit a pair of free throws to key Charlotte's 73-69 victory over Davidson on Wednesday night, giving the 49ers their first 8-0 start in school history.
Henry's final four points came in the last 27.5 seconds, breaking what had been a tie at 69 following a layup by Davidson's De'Mon Brooks with just under one minute left to play.
Chris Braswell led Charlotte with 15 points, Darion Clark added 14 and nine rebounds and Willie Clayton chipped in 12 points. Henry contributed 11 points, eight rebounds, five assists and four steals in a game that was back-and-forth throughout a tense second half.
Mike Krzyzewski says he has good reason to be excited for next season thanks to a combination of Duke's incoming freshmen and a core of experienced upperclassmen.
Georgia guard Juwan Parker has been awarded a medical redshirt, leaving him with two years of eligibility, after missing the 2015-16 season with a partially torn Achilles tendon.
Forward Trevon Bluiett has withdrawn from consideration from the NBA draft and will return to Xavier for his junior season.
