    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Derrio Green scored 16 points and hit the two biggest shots of the game as Charlotte rallied to beat Wright State 57-53 on Wednesday night.

    Green, a 6-foot-2 junior, hit a 17-footer to tie the game at 53 with 1:05 left, then hit a 3-pointer with 15.5 seconds left for a 56-53 lead.

    Charlotte trailed 46-32 with 12 minutes remaining, but rallied thanks to a 2/3 zone defense that limited Wright State to 22.6 percent shooting (7 of 31) in the second half. The Raiders scored on just three of their final 19 possessions.

    Charlotte (6-6) won its second straight tight game after beating Tennessee 49-48 last Friday. The 49ers also got 13 points and seven rebounds from Javarris Barnett.

    N'Gai Evans led Wright State (7-6) with 12 points. Cooper Land scored 10.
