With an emphasis on increasing exposure of basketball in the state of Alabama, Knight Eady is constantly seeking distinctive opportunities to showcase the game and encourage support across our state. With the hire of Avery Johnson as Alabama’s head basketball coach last year, Knight Eady capitalized on his energy and desire to promote the sport of basketball. Through a neutral site match-up in Birmingham at the Legacy Arena between Alabama and Oregon in December of 2015, our company, in partnership with the two basketball programs, created a successful basketball game, drawing over 14,500 fans. Our aim with this event is to foster growing excitement for the sport while providing an opportunity to showcase the student-athletes in a unique way. We were excited to work with both universities in marketing and managing the event last year, and are currently planning for the second annual Vulcan Classic which will feature The University of Alabama taking on Clemson University on Sunday December 18, 2016 at the BJCC. The game will be held at 3 PM and will be televised on ESPNU.
