The University of Alabama men’s and women’s wheelchair basketball teams will defend their national championships on their home court when UA hosts the 2021 Toyota NWBA Collegiate Wheelchair Basketball National Championships March 12-13.
“We found out about six weeks ago that Wichita State was not going to be able to host the collegiate championships, and we let the NWBA (National Wheelchair Basketball Association) know that same day that we could handle it,” said Brent Hardin, athletics director for UA’s Adapted Athletics program. “Within three days they took us up on our offer and we’ve been rolling with it ever since.”
While it’s not the first time UA has hosted the national championships, it is the first time the games will be played on campus in Stran-Hardin Arena, which opened in January 2018.
