UAB shoots record percentage, ends SFA's 31-game home streak
NACOGDOCHES, Texas (AP) Javien Williams scored 21 points and UAB set a school record, shooting 72.1 percent in an 84-73 victory over Stephen F. Austin, ending the Lumberjacks' 31-game home winning streak Wednesday night.
William Lee added 14 points, nine rebounds and five blocks, Dirk Williams 13 points, Deion Lavender 12 and Hakeem Baxter 10 for the Blazers (5-4), who were consistent on offense, shooting 73.7 percent in the first half in taking a 37-30 lead, with 11 points from Williams.
The Lumberjacks' home winning streak was the third longest in the nation. UAB ended Old Dominion's 32-game home win streak last season.
Leon Gilmore III scored 17 points, Kevon Harris 16, TJ Holyfield 12 and Samuli Nieminen 10 for the Lumberjacks (3-4), who had 11 steals on 20 UAB turnovers but couldn't overcome the Blazers' 31-of-43 shooting.
Lavender made six free throws in the final minute in what had been a five-point game.
