Men's Basketball Beaten by Blazers, 79-44
UAB Hits 14 Three-Pointers
Dec. 27, 2010
BIRMINGHAM, AL - George Washington ran into a red-hot UAB team Monday night that converted 14 three-pointers en route to a 79-44 romp at Bartow Arena. The loss snapped a modest three-game winning streak for the Colonials and was the Blazers' fourth straight victory.
GW shot just 29 percent (8-27) in the second half and 33.3 percent for the game compared to UAB's 55 percent (28-51).
UAB (10-2, 0-0 C-USA) was led by Jamarr Sanders' 23 points on 8-12 field goals. Dexter Fields came off the bench to nail 5-9 three-pointers for 17 points and blow the game open.
The Colonials hit the first two shots of the game to lead 4-0, but that was their only lead of the game as the Blazers made the GW pay with crisp ball movement that repeatedly found the open man for a succession of three-pointers. UAB put together a 38-18 run on 52 percent shooting in the first half and led, 38-22, at the break.
GW (5-6, 0-0 A-10) next returns to Smith Center for a New Year's Eve matinee with Holy Cross (1-9, 0-0 PL) on Friday, Dec. 31. The GW-Holy Cross game will tip at 3 p.m. (EST) and will be broadcast on 1500 AM and 820 AM, as well as at FederalNewsRadio.com.
