HOUSTON - UAB used a big run early and never looked back in taking a 68-55 win against the University of Houston men's basketball team Saturday evening inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

The Cougars jumped out to a 6-4 lead early, but the Blazers used a 23-4 run over the next six minutes to build a lead they would never relinquish. UAB took advantage of some long-range shooting during the rally, connecting on five of their nine 3-pointers in the game during that time.

Houston trimmed that deficit to 38-24 by the halftime break, but the Blazers erupted on a 13-2 run to start the second half to take control of the game. With the loss, the Cougars fell to 12-15 overall and 4-10 in C-USA games. UAB improved to 20-7 overall and 10-4 in C-USA play.

Senior forward Maurice McNeil led the Cougars with 14 points and added six rebounds, while sophomore forward Kendrick Washington came off the bench to post 13 points and a team-high eight rebounds.

Senior guard Zamal Nixon added 11 points with two rebounds and a team-high five assists. The Brooklyn, N.Y., native also went 4-of-4 from the free throw line and has hit 25 of his last 26 tries from the charity stripe.

UAB guard Jamarr Sanders led all players with 18 points, including a game-high four 3-pointers, while Ovie Soko and Preston Purifoy posted 17 points apiece. Anthony Criswell added 10 rebounds, while Aaron Johnson added 10 assists in the win.
