BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Dec. 1 (UPI) -- Chad Frazier pumped in 25 points Sunday, boosting Alabama-Birmingham to a 61-57 upset of 16th-ranked North Carolina.

Marcus Paige (13 points) attempted to produce a tie with 9 seconds left but his 3-point shot was blocked by UAB's Robert Williams.

J.P. Tokoto scored 16 points for North Carolina.
