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 27, from 8 to 9:30 p.m. in the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex. All Hofstra students and fans are invited to attend this free event!
As part of the evening, Head Coaches Joe Mihalich and Krista Kilburn-Steveskey will introduce YOUR 2016-17 Hofstra Pride Basketball teams. This will be your first opportunity to see both teams on the court as they participate in fun competitions! All season ticket holders are encouraged to attend to pick up your tickets and gift.
The first 1,000 Hofstra fans in attendance (students included) will receive an EXCLUSIVE Midnight Madness gray jersey t-shirt with the number 16 on it (representing the start of the 2016-17 season). There will be a free food courtesy of Noodles and Company for all students in the Mack Sports Complex starting at 8 p.m.
In addition, students will have the opportunity to win great prizes including an Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza gift card, a Barnes and Noble gift card and Hofstra gear. One lucky student will be selected to take a half-court shot to win free books for the semester, courtesy of the Hofstra University Bookstore. Once again, fans and students can have their pictures taken in a photo booth and receive commemorative prints from the event!
