Draelon Burns missed the first of a one-and-one free throw for DePaul and Delaney was fouled on UAB's next possession. His free throws put the Blazers in front for good, but there was plenty of action down to the end.
DePaul's Karron Clarke missed a shot with five seconds left and UAB rebounded. Mukubu was fouled two seconds later, but he missed both free throws.
Wilson Chandler grabbed the rebound, dribbled to mid court and fired. His shot bounced off the backboard as the buzzer sounded.
