It’s almost time for roundball at St. Catharine College. And again, the basketball mania will start with Patriot Madness in Lourdes Hall. The festivities will tip-off Thursday starting at 8 p.m.. Admission is free and the public is invited.

The doors open at 7:30 p.m. Included in the events will be a dunk contest, a deal-or-no-deal shooting contest, a three-point shootout and a pizza eating contest sponsored by Snappy Tomato Pizza.

Both the Patriot men and women will be introduced for the first time and will run through some practice drills for the crowd in addition to the three-point contests and dunk contests.

The men open the season Nov. 1 with an exhibition game at D-I Southern Mississippi, coached by former SCC head coach Donnie Tyndall. The women start the new campaign Oct. 26 at Martin Methodist.
