UAB holds SMU to record low in 47-28 victory
Wednesday, Feb 15, 2012

DALLAS (AP)—Alabama-Birmingham held SMU to the lowest scoring output ever in a Conference USA game, defeating the Mustangs 47-28 Wednesday night.

The 28 points was fewer than the 36 points scored by UAB against Southern Miss on Jan. 12, 2002, in conference play. Overall, it was the lowest ever scored by SMU in the shot-clock era and its second-lowest since 1950—barely surpassing the 26-point total against TCU on Feb. 15, 1956. The Mustangs’ 12 first-half points Wednesday also set a record for futility in Conference USA play—their previous low for a half was 14 against Memphis on Feb. 18, 2009.

SMU (11-15, 2-9 Conference USA) made just 8 of 46 shots (17 percent) against the Blazers, including 3 of 29 3-point attempts. Robert Nyakundi led the Mustangs with nine points.

For UAB (11-14, 6-6), K.C. Whitaker scored 17 points, Cameron Moore added 12 points and 11 rebounds, and Jordan Swing also had 11 rebounds.
