SUU Basketball Set to Kickoff Season with Basketball Bash

It’s like Midnight Madness, only not at midnight!

Southern Utah’s basketball teams will hold a “Basketball Bash” in the America First Events Center on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.

The event is designed to give fans a first look at the teams and generate buzz for the season that starts a week from today.

Both the men’s and women’s teams will star in a three point contest, a dunk contest and a scrimmage. There will also be a shooting combination a la the “Shooting Stars” competition of NBA All-Star weekend’s past.

The Basketball Bash has become an annual event where Cedar City’s community can connect with its SUU basketball teams. There will be free pizza and ice cream at the event.

Players will also autograph posters for fans upon the event’s conclusion.

The men’s basketball season tips off against Life Pacific Oct. 30 at AFEC.

The women’s team begins their season Nov. 7 at home against San Diego.
