Wow, what a game. Arkansas was a tough opponent on their own floor. Mike Davis with a great play call with 2.2 seconds left; great pick by Elijah Millsap, and the slam home by Howard Crawford coming down the lane for the 73-72 victory. In the past, UAB might not have gotten this done. Maybe Mike Anderson's teams would have, they were good. But this is huge for Mike Davis and the Blazer team. Great shot of confidence that they can win on the road in a tough environment. This is a good basketball team.
Down four late in the game, the Blazers kept clawin' and fightin'. What a win for Coach Davis and Blazers. Big time in a tough environment. These are tournament invitation wins. Blazers go to 12-2.
