In January 2017, the University of North Carolina Board of Governors unanimously approved a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to the Charlotte 49ers.

Lutz led the 49ers to the Conference USA championship in 1999 and 2001 and is now the most successful coach in Charlotte history. The team advanced to the 2011 NCAA Division I championship game.

They finished second in the national poll and lost in a 2011 first-round playoff game to UNC - Chapel Hill, the team's first appearance at an NCAA tournament since 2009.
While Charlotte enjoys a popular and competitive Conference USA, the collegiate sports landscape has changed dramatically in recent years. Women's basketball has seen a surge in popularity on campus since coach Katie Meier's team first reached the NCAA tournament in 2003.

State in the NCAA tournament.
In 1949, when the state began closing the center, it was taken over by the city school district and renamed the Charlotte Center. In 1957, there were 492, and the school board began looking for a permanent location for the campus.
