RE: Lady Blazers Basketball
Once again...they are NOT the "Lady Blazers." They are the UAB women's basketball team. They are Blazers just like the football, soccer and baseball teams.

RE: Lady Blazers Basketball
"Lady _________" - according to the university's name is a common terminology that probably is not officially designated by the Athletic Department. It is just commonly applied usage.

Another way to look at it is the old adage -- "Call me anything you like,but don't call me late for supper".

There are a lot of commonly applied names that are incorrect.

Don’t complain about Alabama-Birmingham if you are going to call them Lady Blazers. Both are incorrect

Fun fact, the LA Tech Women's team are actually the Lady Techsters, because the first coach thought that "Lady Bulldogs" was way too un-feminine

Tough loss when we were up 9 with 5 mins left. There goes our chance at being ranked. Now just have to win the conference championship and dance.

UAB women’s athletics used to be officially referred to as the Lady Blazers also, which was common for most every college program. Not sure when the change was made but I think it was probably in the ‘90’s or early 2000’s.
