Tonight: South Florida at UAB


© St. Petersburg Times, published February 21, 2001

WHEN/WHERE: 8; Bartow Arena, Birmingham, Ala.

TV/RADIO: Ch. 32; WQYK-AM 1010; WAMR-AM 1320.

RECORDS: USF 16-9 (8-4 Conference USA); UAB 14-11 (6-6).

COACHES: USF -- Seth Greenberg (72-69, fifth season; 177-139 overall). UAB -- Murry Bartow (87-63, fifth season).

KEY PLAYERS: USF -- Altron Jackson, F, 6-6 Jr. (20.4 ppg, 4.9 rpg); B.B. Waldon, F, 6-8 Jr. (17.6 ppg, 7.5 rpg); Cedric Smith, F, 6-6 Sr. (10.8 ppg, 4.2 rpg).

NOTES: This is the second meeting in 12 days. ... South Florida pulled out a one-point win Feb. 10 when Jackson hit two free throws with 32 seconds remaining and Sam Sanders blocked a potential winning shot with less than 10 seconds left. ... This is UAB's second game in three days. The Blazers lost Monday to Memphis. ... This is the first of three road games out of the final four for the Bulls. ... Tonight's game ties UAB with Jacksonville for most games played against the Bulls. ... Jackson continues to lead C-USA in scoring, and Waldon is sixth. ... Redshirt freshman Gerrick Morris leads the conference in blocked shots (2.4 a game), and Smith is second in assist/turnover ratio (2.1). ... "UAB poses a lot of problems," Greenberg said. "Bass especially is just so good at taking people off the dribble and getting into the lane. He's the kind of guy that makes your whole basketball team go. He's the focal point of everything they do."
