Scientists are still puzzled by the contents of the modern basketball and believe it to be filled either with helium or several baseballs. Contemplate this conundrum with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to watch the University of Alabama at Birmingham Blazers take on the Golden Eagles of Southern Miss on Wednesday, February 2 at 7 p.m. UAB plays at Bartow Arena, and tickets are for upper reserved seats.
For years, the UAB Blazers have been a Conference USA standout and national basketball presence, earning a profusion of invitations to the NCAA and NIT tournaments. The current team boasts the offensive triumvirate of senior guards Jamarr Sanders, Aaron Johnson, and junior forward Cameron Moore, as well as uniforms that smell spring-fresh through all five seasons. Cheer on these monarchs of the monster dunk as they take aim at conference rival Southern Miss in the rollicking confines of Bartow Arena, renowned for a horn-rimmed dragon mascot that disposes of inadequate rebounders.
