LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Zack Bryant had 26 points, seven steals and four assists as UAB rallied from an early 15-point deficit to beat Canisius 68-58 in the seventh-place game.
Jeremiah Bell scored 15 for UAB (4-2), which had previously lost to No. 14 Florida State and Charleston at the invitational.
"We showed a lot of heart and fight, and I think our team really grew up today," UAB coach Robert Ehsan said. "As a young team facing adversity, to be down a third straight day and not quit shows a huge resilience."
After Canisius got within two late, Bell hit a three and Bryant had a lay up during a 7-0 run that made it 65-56.
Takal Molson had 15 points and Scott Hitchon added 13 for Canisius (1-5).
Bryant had 14 first-half points as UAB used a 20-5 run to tie it at 31-31 with just under a minute to go in the first half.
Canisius led 35-31 at the break.
