BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - UAB finally hit some shots and that proved costly to Miles College as the Blazers beat their crosstown rival 98-66.
The Blazers hit 57.1 percent from the field overall and 55 percent from outside the 3-point line. Overall, UAB was 36-of-63 from the field and 11-of-20 on 3-pointers.
"I think we've struggled hitting shots in non-conference, before we went on break," UAB head coach Robert Ehsan said. "We had some guys step up and hit shots tonight. I think it was a combination of us finding guys and guys hitting shots."
The victory improves the blazers to 7-6 heading into its C-USA opener at Middle Tennessee on Sunday.
