UCCS to host second annual Moonlight Madness

By Doug Fitzgerald published October 16, 2006

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's and women's basketball teams will be hosting the second annual "Moonlight Madness" celebration Thursday at 8:30 p.m. at the Lions' Den.

Moonlight Madness is the Mountain Lions' equivalent of "Midnight Madness" celebrations held around the country  mostly by NCAA Division I programs. UCCS has opted for a more prime-time approach to allow students to attend and participate without putting their next day's classes at risk.

This year's event will not only be fun, but it will also allow students, faculty, staff and fans to meet this season's teams and first-year men's basketball coach Russ Caton.

The festivities will include: team introductions, 3-point contests for fans and players, a slam dunk contest, a two-ball contest, dance and cheer performances and short scrimmages.
