VCU Rams take on UAB Blazers

The VCU Rams (7-3, 1-0 CAA) host the University of Alabama at Birmingham Blazers (2-6, 0-0 C-USA) on Tuesday night at the Siegel Center in a non-conference game.

This year’s UAB squad is probably better than its 2-6 record indicates. The Blazers have lost to quality teams Creighton, Murray State, Wichita State and Kent State. That being said, UAB has also lost (at home) to UT-Martin.

The Blazers have been dreadful offensively, averaging 55.9 points while shooting .390 from the floor. UAB has hit just 26 percent (33-of-127) of its 3-point attempts. Ken Pomeroy’s adjusted offensive ratings rank UAB 258th nationally in offense. The Blazers are averaging a VCU-friendly 15.3 turnovers a game. However, they have been decent on the defensive end, limiting opponents to less than 61 points per game.
