The university announced yesterday that a special event for fans, dubbed Tide Tipoff, will be held at Coleman Coliseum on Tuesday, October 27th. The event will begin at 6 PM. Admission to the event will be free for students and season ticket holders. The event will feature members of the men's and women's teams taking part in activities such as a skills competition and a 3-pt shooting contest. There will also be a dunk contest with celebrity judges (to my knowledge, they have not been named) as well as an autograph session with the players and coaches of both teams. Later that night there will be a concert featuring a hip hop act, Rae Sremmurd (I'm officially old because I have no idea who they are).
This is yet another feather in the cap for the coaching staffs and the university itself as they seek to improve and promote the image of Alabama basketball. This is an event that should bring in a wide array of interested parties such as students, faculty, parents bringing their kids, general fans, etc. I assume one of our writers will be in attendance and will provide a recap of the event. If any of our readers attend, please comment and share your opinion of the event.
