Regular Season Records: Southern Miss 25-7; UAB 25-9
What to Know
The UAB Blazers are 9-2 against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles since February of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Tuesday. The Blazers and Southern Miss are set to clash at 7:30 p.m. ET March 14 at Bartow Arena in the first round of the NIT. UAB won both of their matches against the Golden Eagles last season (84-63 and 81-68) and is aiming for the same result this time around.
UAB has to be hurting after a devastating 78-56 defeat at the hands of the Florida Atlantic Owls this past Saturday. It was supposed to be a close game, and UAB was supposed to come out on top, but neither of those things ended up happening. The top scorer for UAB was guard Jordan Walker (18 points).
Meanwhile, the contest between Southern Miss and the South Alabama Jaguars two weeks ago was not a total blowout, but with Southern Miss falling 78-61, it was darn close to turning into one. Guard Austin Crowley had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 38 minutes with and four turnovers.
With the two teams each stumbling in off of a defeat, both will be hungry for the victory. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
