With their move from Conference USA to the Atlantic 10 comes a new set of challenges for Charlotte's highly successful coach Bobby Lutz, his staff and his players.

"We have to adjust to playing 12 new schools, a whole new group of referees and to playing in some tough new venues that we've never played in before & some modern, others being older, tradition-filled buildings," Lutz said. "So we'll have our work cut out for us."

Memo to fellow Atlantic 10 schools: You'll have your work cut out for you dealing with Charlotte.
