UAB Blazers

The Blazers’ year began on a 10-6 run through their first 16 outings. UAB is 7-3 in the last 10 games, taking out Tulane, East Carolina, Memphis, North Texas, FAU, Tulsa and North Texas again. The losses were to Charlotte, SMU and Rice otherwise during that stretch.

On Wednesday versus Rice, the Blazers were drilled in the first half 49-24. UAB didn’t get much better from there on a 47-45 run and took the blowout loss 94-71 in the end. Leading team scorer Yaxel Lendeborg posted 16 points with 11 rebounds and three assists in the defeat.

Tulane Green Wave

Over on the Tulane side, their year kicked off on a 12-6 stretch over 18 games. The Green Wave have won just one of their last seven games (over Temple), falling to UTSA, Charlotte, SMU, Memphis, SMU again and East Carolina during that time.

Last Sunday versus East Carolina, the Green Wave faced a 38-33 deficit by the break. Tulane didn’t get any closer from there on a 43-34 second half and lost 81-67. Tops on the team in the losing effort was Jaylen Forbes with his 21 points and two steals in 37 minutes of work.


I’ll stick with UAB. The Blazers really need to bounce back after a rough outing versus Rice in their last game, though. UAB shot just 34.4 percent from the field in that one and gave up a whopping 60.3 percent on the other side in a bad defensive effort. The Blazers are still scoring very well themselves this year however, which should serve them well in Sunday’s game.

UAB took an 83-69 home win the last time these teams met up back on January 17. In that one the Blazers shot 48.6 percent from the field and had a 49-29 rebounding advantage. I like UAB to rally in the road rematch and power out a cover.
