As Herd fans painfully know, all five of those games were losses - four convincingly.
Typically, the Herd's 3-point disasters are concentrated in halves. Tulane was the second opponent to make eight in the first half, and it came two weeks after Southern Mississippi did it in that 102-46 firebombing.
Today, the Herd will face a Blazers team, under first-year coach Jerod Haase, that doesn't shoot them all that well (33.6 percent), but isn't shy about throwing them up. Six different players have taken at least 45 3-point attempts in the full season, with Jordan Swing (43 of 116, 37.1 percent) leading the barrage.
On Wednesday, Terence Jones and Quincy Taylor made three each as UAB (10-13, 2-6) went 9 of 20 in one of its more impressive wins of the season, 70-63 at Tulsa.
"They've got enough guys to make shots on the perimeter," Herrion said. "They shoot 3s quick, want to play fast. All their perimeter guys have a [big] night, from game to game."
But here's a 3-point stat that could work in MU's favor: UAB is the league's worst at defending those shots (42.9 percent), and the Herd's D.D. Scarver is playing in his home town of Birmingham. Scarver is the only C-USA player to sink a 3 in every game this season.
