UAB WBB Falls at UTEP 76-58

EL PASO – The UAB women’s basketball team dropped its second consecutive Conference USA game after a 76-58 setback at UTEP on Thursday night.

The Blazers (8-3, 0-2 C-USA) were led by Sara Bershers with 11 points and Margaret Whitley who added 10.

N’Yah Boyd paced the Miners (9-2, 2-0 C-USA) with a game-high 20 points. Jazion Jackson was one rebound shy of a double-double with 13-and-9.

UTEP scored the first 11 points of the game and built a 20-point lead by the 1:12 mark of the 1st quarter.

A 10-0 run, with all points scored by the Bershers sisters, made the score 35-25 with 2:26 remaining until halftime, but that is as close as UAB would come.

The Miners’ lead would get as high as 25 points midway through the 4th quarter at 71-46.

The Blazers remain on the road to face UTSA (2-8, 0-1 C-USA) on Jan. 31. The Roadrunners fell to LA Tech 62-57 earlier this evening.

The next homestand will be Jan. 5 against Florida Atlantic and Jan. 7 versus FIU.
