The Hofstra University Department of Athletics is excited to announce that it will be hosting a MIDNIGHT MADNESS celebration to kick-off the Hofstra Men’s and Women’s Basketball seasons.
The event will take place Thursday, October 16 from 8 – 9:30 p.m. in the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex. We invite ALL of our wonderful fans to come out for this great family-friendly extravaganza.
As part of the events of the evening, Head Coaches Joe Mihalich and Krista Kilburn-Steveskey will be joined by the voice of the Mack Sports Complex, Siddique Farooqi, as we introduce YOUR 2014-15 Hofstra Pride Basketball teams. This will be your first opportunity to see both teams on the court as they each will take part in a short intrasquad scrimmage!
There will be plenty of games, contests and giveaways during the night to keep everyone pumped up and excited about the upcoming basketball seasons.
The first 750 Hofstra fans in attendance (students included) will receive an EXCLUSIVE Midnight Madness gold jersey t-shirt with the number 14 on it (representing the start of the 2014-15 season and the home opener on November 14). We look forward to seeing our fans and students wearing their gold t-shirts on opening night! The women’s basketball team will take on Central Connecticut State and the men’s basketball squad will face Jacksonville.
