Dewart leads Lady Mocs past UAB

January 2nd, 2013 by John Frierson in Local Regional News

Ashlen Dewart scored 23 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's basketball team to a 66-57 come-from-behind win against UAB today at Bartow Arena.

The Lady Mocs (9-2) trailed 28-23 at the half and every time UTC pulled ahead early in the second half, the Blazers (9-4) answered. That changed when the game was tied at 42. Ka'Vonne Towns put UTC up 45-42 with a 3-pointer and the Lady Mocs remained in front.

A Dewart hook shot put UTC up 58-51 and Towns followed that with a long pass over UAB's press to Kylie Lambert for a layup and a 60-51 lead.
