Manhattan, KS -- The Charlotte 49ers Women's Basketball team came close to winning at Kansas State. But that whole horseshoes and hand-grenades thing -- applies to basketball, too. Kansas State held on for a 73-65 win.
The 49ers were down by as much as 15 points, after trailing by 11 at halftime. They came back to close within four, at 69-65, with under 30 seconds to play. Unfortunately for the 'Niners, Kansas State made free throws down the stretch, to set the final margin.
Ayanna Holmes led Charlotte with 15 points.
