UAB Sinks Miracle Shot to Advance to the Semi-Finals of the C-USA Tournament

03/12/2015

Robert Brown was the hero in tonight’s game as he sank the game winning jump shot with 19 second left in the game. Although he made the game winning shot, he only scored 11 points in the game. This is something that has been a common theme the whole year as UAB doesn’t really have one single superstar.

This can give opponents fits, because they really don’t know who to game plan for. It’s always someone different who steps up and saves the day. I think that this is the way Coach Haase likes to see his team play.  I think that Coach Haase is really building on something that Birmingham needs to get behind.

Tonight we had an excellent crowd at Legacy Arena.  The place was packed and it was rocking considering it was a Thursday night.  That needs to be continued if we want to see UAB have a chance to win this thing.  I believe that they can, but they are going to need all the support they can get.

The fans tonight were excellent, but we will need even more on Firday.

Tonight was an important win for this program to take a huge step in the right direction.  This was UAB’s first win the the C-USA tournament since they beat SMU in the first round in 2013.  They are in the semifinals for the first time since 2009.

I am proud of they grit that they showed tonight.  After all the trials and tribulations they have gone through this year, they never quit on each other.  This is just as important as winning games because character can take you places in life.  Athletics is one of the greatest arenas in the world to test someone’s true character.

I will be covering the C-USA Tournament throughout the rest of the week.  Feel free to follow me on twitter via @TeenageSportGuy and on Fancred at http://fancred.com/#users/35296/posts
