BIRMINGHAM, Ala. ----- The tip-off time for the Wednesday, Nov. 27 UAB men’s basketball game with Florida A&M has been moved to 1 p.m. CST.
The time change was made to better accommodate Blazer fans for the game that will be held on the day before Thanksgiving. Originally, the UAB vs. Florida A&M contest was slated for 7 p.m. CST.
“We felt that with many of our fans traveling later that day or hosting family or friends for the Thanksgiving holiday, that the earlier start time would provide a better opportunity to attend the game,” UAB head coach Jerod Haase said.
“We’re hoping with the afternoon start time that our fans will come out to enjoy some UAB basketball before the Thanksgiving holiday.”
UAB’s next home game will be tonight when the Blazers play host to the Troy Trojans for a 7 p.m.
