Tip-Off Classic pits UAB against Massachusetts

SPRINGFIELD, MA — In a match-up of prominent teams from Conference USA and the Atlantic 10 Conference, UAB and Massachusetts will play in the Tip-Off Classic on Nov. 27.

UAB, which lost to Arizona in the second round of last season's NCAA tournament, will be making its first appearance in the game played at the MassMutual Center in downtown Springfield.

Massachusetts, led by first-year coach Travis Ford, will be making its second appearance in the game. The then third-ranked Minutemen beat No. 1 Arkansas 104-80 in the 1994 Tip-Off Classic. Massachusetts went to No. 1 after that game for the first time in school history.

No. 13 Maryland beat No. 25 Memphis 84-61 in last year's game.
