    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Marvett McDonald scored 18 points and had six assists and Cardell "Squeaky" Johnson followed with 16 points to lead UAB to a 85-57 victory over Old Dominion Thursday night.

    UAB (6-3) got off to an early start, opening the game on a 14-0 run and shooting 63 percent from the floor in the first half.

    The 28-point loss was Old Dominion's worst setback in 211 games, spanning to an 83-53 loss to George Mason on Jan. 4, 1999.

    "I thought, for the most part, for 40 minutes we played some very good basketball," UAB head coach Mike Anderson said. "It was all predicated from our defense. Of course, we made shots. When you make shots, it makes a big, big difference -- and we rebounded well."

    Old Dominion (7-4) battled back and cut the game to five at 15-10 with 11:46 left in the first, but that would be the closest the Monarchs would get in the game.

    The Blazers led 48-22 at the half and were up by as many as 39 points at 77-38 with 6:03 left to play.

    Valdas Vasvlius and Isaiah Hunter led Old Dominion with 18 points each.
