UAH prepares for NCAA South Regional

FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) - The UAH Chargers are the top seed and will face 8-seed St Leo.

The Chargers lost to the Lions earlier this season in overtime 93-90.

UAH started the season 5-3, but went on a stretch to win 18 of their next  22 games.

Lennie Acuff loves the resiliency of this team heading into Saturday's opening round game.

"You know, every time we get down, we fight back," Head Coach Lennie Acuff said Wednesday. "For example, we're down 24 in the game Saturday, and get it back down to 4 with a few minutes to go, and I thought that we would win, I really did. And they just keep fighting back, and keep fighting back, and that says a lot about their character and who they are."

The Chargers tip off against the St Leo Lions at 5 p.m. Saturday at Spragins Hall.
