Birmingham, AL (SportsNetwork.com) - C.J. Washington registered a double- double with 18 points and 10 boards as the UAB Blazers edged the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 79-76, in a non-conference tilt at the Bartow Center.

Rutgers held a 30-23 lead with 3:37 remaining in the opening half and took a 37-31 lead into the intermission. The Scarlet Knights converted all eight of their free-throw attempts in the first half while UAB went 0-of-8 from behind the 3-point line.

The Blazers shot 50 percent from the floor in the second period to overcome the halftime deficit. Rutgers made 42.9 percent of its field goal tries, but could watched its lead slip away as it sank only 11-of-18 attempts at the charity stripe in the second half. UAB created some distance on the scoreboard late in the contest until Craig Brown made a layup for the Scarlet Knights to make it a one possession game as time expired.

Thanks to the strong play by Washington, Rucker and Alihodzic, UAB held a 54-27 edge in the rebounding battle which led to a 26-10 advantage in second chance points.
