UAB demolish UTSA

See also

The offensive power of UAB was too much for UTSA Women’s Basketball as they fell 79-56 at the Bartow Arena in Birmingham on Wednesday night.

Karisma Chapman was dominant for UAB as she managed 27 points and 11 rebounds, blowing away UTSA who struggled to respond to UAB’s offense.

UTSA’s best was 16 points with Kamara King and Tesha Smith both managing the mark, but falling well short of Chapman’s total.

Turnovers were a big deal in the match, with both teams struggling to retain the ball, UTSA giving up 16 turnovers, while UAB gave up 12. What cost UTSA dearly was not converting those 12 turnovers in to points, compared to their opponents.

The Blazers started well going on a 12-1 run to open the scoring and taking the game away from UTSA in the very early stages.

The bright note for UTSA was King making the 900th point of her career when she hit a free-throw with 11:58 remaining in the half.

That was about as good as it got for UTSA who were completely outplayed by a vastly superior UAB outfit who kept the pressure up with a second half score line of 36-29.

That the Roadrunners even got to Birmingham was impressive, with the winter weather that has hit much of the country also hitting Alabama, leaving UAB under two inches of snow.
