BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The UAB women’s basketball team is currently ranked No. 1 in the Conference USA standings and they will square off with second-ranked Rice on Thursday at 6 p.m. in a battle for the top spot in the league. 

The team is also coming off its 20th win of the year, its first 20-win season since 2010-11 and the ninth in program history. 

The Blazers are 10-1 in Bartow Arena this season and with six games left to play, the Blazers are eyeing their first-ever regular season conference title. 

“We’ve never won a conference championship or regular season conference title and when I recruited this team, I said I want you to come and help make history and take UAB women’s basketball to where it’s never been before and they’re on a mission to do that,” said UAB head coach Randy Norton. 

UAB and Rice tipoff Thursday at 6 p.m.
