Jan 31, 2010 - 2:03 AM AMHERST, Mass.(AP) -- Derrio Green scored a career-high 34 points to lead Charlotte to a 72-58 victory over Massachusetts on Saturday night.

The 49ers (16-5, 5-1 Atlantic 10 Conference), who led 37-36 with 16:10 remaining, went on a 21-5 run over the next 9:40 to take command against the Minutemen (8-11, 2-5).

Charlotte remained tied for the conference lead with Temple, a half-game ahead of Xavier, which hosts Fordham on Sunday.
