Lewis Sullivan had 12 points and eight rebounds for UAB (18-13, 10-8 Conference USA), which snapped its four-game home losing streak. Tavin Lovan added 11 points. Jeremiah Bell had 10 points for the hosts.

Ahmad Caver had 21 points for the Monarchs (23-8, 13-5). Xavier Green added 10 points.
The Blazers leveled the season series against the Monarchs with the win. Old Dominion defeated UAB 70-59 on Feb. 7.
