My memory is fading but I wanted to say that Corey Jackson stepped on the baseline.

It may have happened twice, but that scenario fits the 1985 NCAA game when Ponder dribbled it off his foot out of bounds, and Coach Bartow chased the refs off the court yelling he was fouled.

Mitchell got hip checked by Andre Turner and caused him to dribble off his foot near the end of the 1st half. Vincent Askew (IIRC) hit Ponder across the arms and knocking him to the floor on the final shot in OT, prompting coach to chase the referees.

I know its early in the season and neither team is very good right now but I would still think it will draw over 5000 just because I don't think we have ever not had well over that figure for Memphis.

So, I would take the OVER for $100 if anyone wants to wager.

And wont Memphis bring at least 500 or so fans anyway?

I expect they will be bribing students to come with free food & stuff so the student section should have a decent showing.
Id like to see 7000-8000+ anyway. Because we need the crowd support.

RE: The Memphis And UAB Rivalry (Re-Post)
I'd love to see 7k plus, but I doubt it will happen. Memphis isn't what it usually is, and few of the current Memphis students have any reason to get amped up about playing UAB or to consider it a rivalry game. A lot of the Memphis fans are unhappy with Tubby Smith, as well.

We don't normally put many butts into seats until after all the bowl games are over. That's dumb, but it's still the history.

It's Memphis and played at Bartow, so there will be a lot of Blazer fans excited about it, but I doubt it goes over 5k or so.

UAB's attendance issues are not UAB's along. I am in DC and decided to go to a Georgetown game. They are undefeated and it is Patrick Ewing first year as coach. They are playing Maine, not a marquee game. There might be 3000 people here.

Memphis won't bring many if any. There is very little interest in basketball. And I imagine their diehards are traveling to Tampa for the AAC championship Saturday.

Yes, there are a lot of reasons to not attend a basketball game. UAB missed an opportunity to maybe try to get some fannies in the seats for Memphis.

A black Friday or Cyber Monday deal with cheap tickets couldn't have hurt. What they did promote was stupid. $20-25 seats. Wow, hard to pass up.

But I still think there will be more than 4000 people there. Which probably means at least 5500 on the official attendance.

I noticed UAT has several games on groupon for cheap.

Guess some still don't want him benched yet. Perfect game to do so.

Nick has earned a dozen more games to get up to speed. Besides, putting it all on scootie might be too much.
