Tickets are on sale now to the C.M. Newton Classic, presented by Legacy Credit Union, on Tuesday, December 21 at Legacy Arena! Watch as Alabama faces off against Colorado State University in the all NEW Legacy Arena.
C.M. Newton was known not only for his coaching accolades but for his commitment to diversity and inclusion. Newton was the first to integrate the University of Alabama men’s basketball team. He recruited the first black player at Alabama in 1969 and went on to field the first all-black starting lineup in the SEC. During the C.M. Newton Classic, we will honor his commitment to change and not settling with the then status quo.
We look forward to seeing you at Legacy Arena on December 21. Tip off is at 6 p.m CST.
