Oct. 22, 2012
CHICAGO – The UIC men’s basketball team was recently featured on ABC Chicago’s ‘7 On Your Sideline’, a video segment that highlights area sports teams on the rise.
The two-minute long video shows footage from UIC’s annual Red vs. Blue scrimmage that took place this past Saturday inside the Flames Athletic Center. Head coach Howard Moore is also shown addressing the event crowd and speaking to cameras at Chicago Basketball Media Day.
“We want to build the type of program the city of Chicago will be proud of,” said Moore. “A program that signifies what this city is about – hard work, determination, grit, grime and all those things that make this city what it is.
The Flames will play their only exhibition game on Nov. 7 against UW-Platteville at the UIC Pavilion with tip scheduled for 7 p.m. CT. UIC will then lift the lid on the 2012-13 regular season at home against UC-Riverside on Nov. 11.
