(TSX / STATS) -- Charlotte fired four-time NBA All-Star Mark Price after two-plus seasons, the school announced Thursday.

Price, who signed a five-year deal worth $500,000 per season in 2015, posted a 30-42 overall mark and a 16-20 record in Conference USA during his time with the 49ers.

Assistant coach Houston Fancher will guide the 49ers (3-6) on an interim basis, the school announced.


No. 21 Baylor rips 0-10 Texas Southern

Trio leads USC in rout of Santa Clara

Brunson has 31, No. 1 'Nova routs Temple

No. 9 A&M sets school mark with 16 3s

(TSX / STATS) -- COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- After Texas A&M scored its most points in nearly 30 years and drilled the most 3-pointers in school history, it's easy to understand why Tyler Davis enjoyed Wednesday night against Savannah State.

"I thought it was a fun game," he said. "They were shooting a lot of shots and we were shooting a lot of shots. They tried to zone us, but like I said it was fun watching the guys get up and down. We had some highlight plays, some cool dunks. It was a lot of fun watching that."


No. 24 Texas Tech rolls by Kennesaw St.

Freshman guard Tremont Waters contributed 17 points and six assists, and he rejected a game-tying 3-point attempt by Houston junior guard Corey Davis Jr. in the final seconds. Sophomore guard Skylar Mays added 18 points and a career-best nine rebounds for the Tigers (6-2).


Brown takes over, Ducks top Portland St.
