UCF 64, UAB 48
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Keith Clanton had 12 points, 13 rebounds
and five blocks and Central Florida defeated cold-shooting
Alabama-Birmingham 64-48 Wednesday night in the Conference USA
opener for both teams.
The Knights (11-4), who will move to the Big East next season,
snapped the Blazers' streak of hitting at least one 3-pointer a
game since Dec. 18, 1996, a span of 538 games. UAB (8-8) went 0
for 23 from long range and was the first UCF opponent to go
without a 3-pointer since 2005.
The Blazers shot only 26 percent (20 of 77) to post their lowest
point total of the season.
The Knights led by 11 at the 3:29 mark and 31-23 at halftime,
but the Blazers fought back, tying it at 31 with 15:52 left.
Calvin Newell, who scored 14 points, and Tristan Spurlock hit
back-to-back 3-pointers and UCF pulled away.
Rod Rucker's 17 points and 14 rebounds led UAB.
