Coach Gene Bartow

Jan. 10, 2013

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. ---- Tickets are still available for Saturday's Fourth Annual Bartow Classic between the UAB men's basketball team and Memphis, slated for 7:30 p.m. CT inside Bartow Arena.

Less than 1,500 tickets remain for Saturday's Bartow Classic.  It is anticipated that tickets will be available on the day of the game with the UAB Athletics Ticket Office opening at 10 a.m. and remaining open through the game.

In the last meeting between the two rivals at Bartow Arena, Memphis narrowly edged the Blazers, 62-59.  In addition, the last three meetings in Bartow have been decided by five points or less.

The Bartow Classic is sponsored by UAB Medicine as it recognizes the late UAB men's basketball coach and Athletics Director Gene Bartow for his long standing commitment to Blazers' athletics, who passed away from stomach cancer a year ago.

UAB athletics will donate $2 for every ticket sold to the Coach Gene Bartow Fund for Cancer Research, which was established in December of 2009.  

Tickets for the game are $27 for lower-level reserved seats and $22 for upper-level reserved seats.  Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the UAB Ticket Office at (205) 975-8221.
