Charlotte 49ers basketball is open to the public this week.


The 49ers will host Basketball Madness Oct. 18 at 9 p.m. and Fan Day on Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. at Halton Arena. The first 500 fans at Basketball Madness will receive a foam pick hand.


Basketball Madness includes a meet and greet with the men’s and women’s teams, a slam dunk contest, skills challenge and videos. Admission is free and doors open at 8:45 p.m.


The doors for Fan Day open at 1:30 pm., with the women’s team scrimmage at 2 p.m. followed by the men at 2:30 p.m. An autograph session will be held and inflatable activities will be available for children.


Charlotte’s men return three starters, including preseason second-team All-Atlantic 10 pick Chris Braswell, guard DeMario Mayfield and A-10 All-Defensive team selection Pierria Henry. Eight letter winners return for the 49ers, who play Division II Pfeiffer in an exhibition on Nov. 1. Charlotte opens the regular-season against Charleston Southern in Halton Arena on Nov. 9.


The women’s team returns all five starters and nine letter winners, with seniors Jennifer Hailey, Jai Forney and Amanda Dowe leading the way. Charlotte plays Johnson C. Smith in an exhibition on Nov. 3 at 7 p.m., and tips off the regular-season against N.C. Central on Nov. 10.
