    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- DeMario Mayfield scored 18 points off the bench to help Charlotte beat Fordham 74-68 Wednesday night in an Atlantic 10 matchup.

    JT Thompson went 4 of 4 from the field and made all four free throws for 12 points, and Darion Clark added 11 points to help Charlotte (15-2, 3-0) win its fourth consecutive game.

    Mayfield, Thompson and Clark helped the 49ers outscore Fordham 44-16 in bench points.

    Trailing at halftime 31-27, Fordham took a 45-43 lead on Branden Frazier's dunk with 11:47 left to play.

    Charlotte answered tying the game on Thompson's jumper, then took the lead for good when Mayfield's 3-pointer made it 48-45 at the 10:50 mark.

    Fordham (5-13, 1-2) kept it close, getting within two points, 65-63 with 1:21 remaining, but Mayfield and Pierria Henry converted 7 of 8 free throws in the final minute to seal the victory.

    Frazier scored 23 points for the Rams.
