CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Justin Hurtt hit a career-high five 3-pointers and scored 15 points to lead Tulsa to a 65-50 victory over Charlotte on Saturday.

Jerome Jordan added 16 points and Ben Uzoh had 11 for Tulsa (11-5), which shot 42.1% from the field (24 of 57 ) to win its third straight.

Phil Jones scored 15 points and Lamont Mack added 10 for the 49ers (5-9), who shot just 25.9% from the field and trailed by as many as 19 points in losing their third consecutive game.

Tulsa was called for 28 fouls and five players finished with four fouls. However, Charlotte was only 20 of 38 from the free-throw line.

The 49ers cut a 13-point halftime margin to 41-31 on Mack's two free throws with 15:12 left.

But the Golden Hurricane responded with a 7-point run, capped by Uzoh's steal and dunk, to push their lead to 48-31 with 12:30 remaining.
