UAB Basketball Team Going to Spain

Posted: Updated:

From UAB Sports Information:

The UAB men's basketball team will take a summer trip to Spain on Aug. 16-23 to play exhibition games in preparation for the 2014-15 season.
All details of the trip are not finalized, but UAB will play two games in Madrid and one in Barcelona.
"We are excited to be taking this trip to Spain over the summer," head coach Jerod Haase said. "One of our goals this season is for our team to be a really tight-knit group and this is a great start. We will have eight guys who are freshmen or sophomores and this is a prime opportunity for us to grow as a team."
UAB's roster this season will feature five freshmen, with guards Nick Norton and Jarvis Calhoun and forwards William Lee, Chris Cokley and Lewis Sullivan. The Blazers return three sophomores in guards Denzell Watts and Tyler Madison and forward Tosin Mehinti, while transfer Robert Brown will be the team's lone junior.
Also returning this season will be UAB's leading scorers from a year ago in senior guard Chad Frazier (17.7 ppg) and senior forward C.J. Washington (13.0 ppg).
