UAB 81, Tulane 73

  •  

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Cameron Moore scored 25 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as Alabama-Birmingham defeated Tulane 81-73 Saturday night.

After leading 30-27 at halftime, the Blazers (12-14, 7-6 Conference USA) scored the first 14 points of the second half to go up 44-27 with 15:39 remaining.

The Green Wave (15-11, 3-9), however, refused to fold. With Ricky Tarrant scoring 29 of his 33 points in the second half, they came back to trail just 73-70 after Jay Hook's 3-pointer with 39 seconds left.

Preston Purifoy dunked to give UAB a five-point lead, and after Jordan Callahan missed a 3-pointer for Tulane, Tarrant fouled Moore, who made both free throws for a 77-70 lead with 17 seconds to play.

Purifoy finished with 19 points and Jordan Swing 16 for the Blazers.

Josh Davis added 15 points and 11 rebounds for Tulane. Tarrant's 33 points tied a season best for the freshman guard.
