Nassau, The Bahamas -- Presenting its athletics brand to the community, the University of The Bahamas (UB) held a fun-filled 'UB Blue Day and Pep Rally' on Thursday, March 2, at the Oakes Field Campus, introducing the men's basketball team, 'UB Mingoes,' and the institution's 'Mingoes Mascot' to the student body and the general public.

The word, Mingoes, is in recognition of the National Bird, the flamingo.
