There is an early season basketball tournament called the “Emerald Coast Classic.” It is held at Northwest Florida State College, home of the Raiders. Northwest Florida State College is located in Niceville, Florida. UAB and Virginia Tech met in the third-place game of this tournament.
AND AT ONE POINT IN THE GAME, BEFORE IT HEADED TO OVERTIME, THE SCORE WAS TIED AT 69.

UNTIL NICEVILLE IS AWARDED A PROFESSIONAL SPORTS TEAM CALLED THE 69ERS AND THEY WIN THEIR 69TH CHAMPIONSHIP OVER A TEAM FROM NICE, FRANCE BY A SCORE OF 69 TO 6.9, THIS IS THE NICEST MOMENT IN SPORTS HISTORY.
(If you must know, the Hokies beat the Blazers 82-77 in overtime.)
