It’s almost time for roundball at St. Catharine College. And again, the basketball mania will start with Patriot Madness in Lourdes Hall. The festivities will tip-off Thursday starting at 8:00. Admission is free and the public is invited.
The doors open at 7:30. Included in the events will be a dunk contest, a deal or no deal shooting contest, a three-point shootout and a pizza eating contest sponsored by Snappy Tomato Pizza. The first 150 students through the door will receive a Patriot madness t-shirt.
Both the Patriot men and women will be introduced for the first time and will run through some practice drills for the crowd in addition to the three-point contests and dunk contests.
The men open the season November 1st with an exhibition game at D-I Southern Mississippi, coached by former SC head coach Donnie Tyndall. The women start the new campaign October 26th at Martin Methodist.
