Character win...

UAB’s men’s basketball team opened with a win in Conference USA and got its 17th-straight win at Bartow Arena this Sunday against Middle Tennessee, but it didn't come easily.  The Blue Raiders held a 42-30 half time lead after leading for most of the first half, powered by Reggie Upshaw who finished with a game-high 21 points and 7 rebounds.

However, in the second half the Blazers chipped away at the Middle Tennessee lead paced by Robert Brown and Nick Norton who scored 14 points apiece.  The Blazers finally took the lead with about 5 minutes to play on a pair of William Lee (10 points, 6 rebounds) free throws and finished the game strong for a final score of 78 - 67.
