Covenant Basketball Hosts Midnight Madness

On Thursday, October 15, at 8:30 p.m. in Barnes Gymnasium, the Covenant College men's and women's basketball teams will host Midnight Madness to kick off the 2009-2010 basketball season. 


Covenant is in its first year of transition to NCAA Division III, and one change for the basketball programs is that they cannot conduct practice until October 15.


Midnight Madness will run from 8:30-10:00 p.m. There will be a dunk contest featuring four men's basketball players, two students, and two members of the faculty/staff.  A group of four "celebrity" faculty/staff judges will be responsible for scoring each dunker.  A three-point shooting contest featuring two women's players, two men's players, and four students will also take place.


There will be a 10-minute women's scrimmage and a 15-minute men's scrimmage to allow a chance to watch the new members of each team.  Students, faculty, staff, and community members will also have the opportunity to win prizes that will be given away throughout the evening.  


Admission is free and members of the community are encouraged to attend as well.
