BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Chris Cokley scored 19 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for his third straight double-double and UAB never trailed in beating Division III Le Moyne-Owen 81-57 on Thursday night for its first 3-0 start since 2013-14.

William Lee scored 14 points with nine rebounds and three blocks and is 35 blocks shy of becoming UAB's all-time leader. Nick Norton had nine assists, and Zack Bryant had 14 points and four of UAB's 13 steals, which helped the Blazers score 22 points off of 18 Magicians turnovers.
