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.
