LCU BASKETBALL: Midnight Madness takes place Monday night

Provided by LCU Athletics

The NCAA Division II places the official date to begin in-season practices as Oct. 15 for men's and women's basketball, so Monday night, Lubbock Christian University will celebrate Midnight Madness inside the Rip Griffin Center beginning at 10:15 p.m. (Monday night) with free food served by Buffalo Wild Wings.

Several games involving fans and the student body will take place, with a plethora of prizes being given away. Also slated is a dunk contest, in which LCU players will serve as judges, promotional contests by City Bank and Foot Tech, and an enormous game of knockout.

At 11:45 p.m., the LCU men's and women's basketball teams will be introduced. Once midnight strikes the basketball teams will have an open practice to kick off their first in-season practice of the season. The official in-season practice period means teams are eligible to practice up to 20 hours per week.

This is LCU's first season to partake in a midnight practice to kick off the in-season practice period, as this is their first season as members of the NCAA Div. II's Heartland Conference. Food will begin being served inside the Rip Griffin Center at 10:15 p.m. and the festivities begin at 10:30 p.m. The event is free to attend.
