1992 - UAB defeated Southern 100-88.

1993 - UAB played at #7 Temple who was coming off an upset of #3 Kansas. Both teams played excellent defense which resulted in a low scoring game. UAB's Corey Jackson had a chance to tie the game at the buzzer, but his three point shot bounced off the rim, and Temple won 55-52.

1997 - UAB beat North Texas 79-73.

2009 - In the very first Bartow Classic, UAB played East Tennessee State, coached by Murray Bartow making his first trip to Bartow Arena since leaving in 2002. The actual game was an afterthought, and the main event was honoring Coach Bartow who had recently been inducted into the College Basketball Hall of Fame. Video tributes from coaches around the country and former players saluted Bartow in front of a crowd of 6411. The night was special as well because it seemed symbolically welcomed Murry Bartow back into the UAB family. His team lost to the Blazers 74-52, which outrebounded the Bucs 52-28. Elijah Millsap had 15 boards, Kenneth Cooper had 10 and Jamarr Sanders had nine. Gene Bartow said that he had never seen a better offensive rebounding effort.
