Hoops DunkUAB basketball is heading back outdoors.

On Thursday, October 9th Hoops on the Haasephalt will hit the asphalt for the third time with both the UAB men's and women's basketball teams beginning their seasons in grand fashion.

An outdoor basketball court will be put up in parking lot 15A on the corner of 13th Street and University Boulevard in front of the Bell and Ullman buildings on the UAB campus.

The Fan Zone will open up at 6:00 p.m. and will include inflatables, face painting and food trucks.  At 7:00 p.m. it's the main event with a celebrity knockout competition, three-point and slam dunk contests and fireworks.

As a part of the Homecoming Week celebrations, a pep rally for the football team will also be held.

On top of getting introduced to both Blazer basketball teams, there will be special appearances by Bravo's Jersey Belles, Mayor William Bell, 33/40 Chief Meteorologist James Spann, and more!
