UAB is 6-3 on this date.

1978 - UAB defeated Georgia State 100-81. It was the first time ever that UAB scored 100 points in a game.

1981 - UAB defeated Roosevelt 86-40.
1982 - UAB defeated Columbus College 56-42.
1985 - UAB beat West Texas State 65-56 in an holiday tournament in Hawaii.

1990 - In one of UAB's most embarrassing losses at Bartow Arena, the Blazers lost in the first round of the UAB Classic to Monmouth 62-60. UAB had won every UAB Classic except in 1982, losing to Murray State and in 1984 to George Mason, but those had at least been championship losses.

1991 - UAB hosted Minnesota, coached by former WKU coach, Clem Haskins. Both teams had only one loss. UAB was undersized with their tallest player at 6'7". Minnesota started two 6'8" players and a seven footer. It did not matter to Elbert Rogers who scored 32 points, 26 of them in the second half as UAB won 86-80.

1996 - UAB lost to Ball State, led by future NBA star Bonzi Wells 82-70 in a game in Hawaii.

2005 - UAB traveled to Minnesota to play the Golden Gophers. Demario Eddins sat the first half of the game for violating a team rule and Minnesota took a 16 point first half lead. When Eddins came in in the second half, he immediately made a difference hitting two jumpers and leading the Blazers on a 11-2 run to get back in the game.

Down by five with 34 seconds to play, Squeaky Johnson and Marvette McDonald hit two three pointers. Minnesota hit one of two free throws and the game was tied with 10.6 seconds to go. Then, inexplicably, thinking UAB was down one, Demario Eddins fouled a Minnesota player in the backcourt. Minnesota hit one of two free throws and won the game 69-68.

2014 - UAB defeated UNC Asheville 79-71
