BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Cameron Moore scored 25 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead Alabama-Birmingham to an 80-69 victory over Houston on Wednesday night. Moore also blocked five shots for the Blazers (8-13, 3-5 Conference USA) while posting his eighth double-double this season. It was the senior's 22nd career double-double, tying him for second in UAB history with Lawrence Kinnard. UAB led 48-27 with 3:24 left until halftime after a 26-10 run that included 10 points by Moore and two 3-pointers by Quincy Taylor. The Cougars (11-10, 3-5) trailed 70-64 with 5:39 left in the game, but a jumper by Moore and a 3-pointer by Preston Purifoy widened the lead to 75-64 with 2:53 to play.
