BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Makhtar Gueye had 15 points and seven rebounds as UAB defeated Marshall 61-50 on Saturday night.
Tavin Lovan had 11 points and seven rebounds for the Blazers (11-6, 2-2 Conference USA), who have won five in a row at home. Tyreek Scott-Grayson had 7 points and 11 rebounds for UAB. Tamell Pearson also had seven rebounds as the Blazers dominated inside with a 48-29 rebounding advantage.
After a low-scoring first-half that ended tied at 24, UAB opened the second half with a 16-4 run that set the defensive tone as Marshall would shoot 27% after halftime, 2 for 12 from 3-point distance.
The game, like several others in Alabama, was rescheduled for a later tip-off due to severe weather in the state.
UAB plays at Florida International on Thursday. Marshall matches up against Charlotte at home on Thursday.
