All five starters finished in double figures for Young Harris, led by Herdie Lawrence's 22, and 15 apiece from Sam Mike and Ben Waterhouse, the latter a career high. C.J. Wilson notched a career-best 12 assist for the Mountain Lions. The last time the teams met, in 2012, UAB pounded Young Harris 105-59.
A Kevin Altidor layup, on a feed from Wilson, and a Mike free throw pulled the Mountain Lions as close as 40-34 with 4:06 left in the first half, but UAB was up 51-43 at the break and pulled away after halftime.
