Perry, Sullivan lead UAB to 72-57 win over North Alabama
UAB overcame an early nine-point deficit and led 35-31 at halftime. The Blazers pushed the lead to 11 early in the second half after Perry hit a 3-pointer and a shot from the lane. Each time North Alabama got close — twice the deficit was three — UAB responded with short runs to keep its lead.
Sullivan helped UAB to a 39-28 advantage on the boards for a 22-7 margin on second-chance points, and Scott-Grayson and Butler helped the reserves post a 24-4 scoring advantage. UAB, which had nine turnovers, turned 14 North Alabama turnovers into 18 points.
It was the first meeting between the schools.
