Hoops on the Haasephault returns Friday October 4
Blazer students will be short a parking lot as ‘Hoops on the Haasephault’ will be set for action on Friday night at 6 pm.
The unique basketball introduction will hope to bring excitement to the upcoming season by giving out free food to the first 500 students as well as giving one a half court shot to win tuition, autograph signings and inflatables to bring fun for the whole family.
To kick off the event UAB will have the women’s national wheelchair team, along with BMX rider Terry Adams. Then there will be a UAB athletics dance competition, a three point competition and a dunk contest.
The dance contest will include both basketball teams, the men’s soccer team and the softball team in a coordinated dance by the Golden Girls and the UAB Cheerleaders.
“Even though we had a great event last year, we came into this season’s Hoops on the Haasephalt with the goal of making this the premiere tip-off event in college basketball,” Haase said. “We have a lot of special activities planned for children, families, students and citizens of Birmingham, so I encourage everyone to come out, and make this a special night for UAB basketball, our city and our state.”
Last year the Blazers had over 2,600 fans in attendance and hope to bring even more out for the start of the signature sport here at UAB.
So come out and take part in the festivities and help welcome in first year women’s head coach Randy Norton and wish second year men’s head coach a successful season.
