What the Buzz is About

She might be hotter than a parked car in August, but Mischa Barton gossip isn’t the only buzz coming out of the OC these days. The ABA’s Orange County Buzz, who face the Florida Pit Bulls Friday, might not be lighting up gossip columns, but let’s see Mischa dunk. The real buzz though has been Tim Hardaway’s Pit Bulls, who stand atop the ABA’s Barnes-Malone Division with an 18-7 record. Pulling double duty as head coach and leading scorer, Hardaway will be looking to get the Pits back in the win column in their first game since the ABA All-Star break. Timmy might not be the only former Heat player taking the court, as the Buzz have recently acquired 1992 NBA slam dunk champ, and former Heat benchwarmer, Cedric Ceballos. The game tips at 7 p.m. at the BankAtlantic Center (2555 Panther Parkway, Sunrise). Tickets start at $15. Call 1-888-484-6849, or visit www.floridapitbulls.com.
