The “Madness” Hits Milledgeville Oct. 14

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - It's annually one of the highest-attended events on the Georgia College & State University campus, and it's coming in the wee hours Oct. 14-15. Midnight Madness, signifying the beginning of the NCAA basketball season invades the Centennial Center Wednesday, Oct. 14 with doors opening at 10 p.m.

A full slate of action awaits Bobcat fans that night, including three-point contests for both the men's and women's teams, slam dunk contests and much more, culminating in the inter-squad scrimmages after midnight.

It all starts with the crowd-grabbing free pancakes, thanks to the Macon Fire Department.

This year features an extra-special event, where the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Championship Pep Band, under the direction of Todd Shiver, and the Student Government Association (SGA) will unveil the brand-new Georgia College Fight Song.

Both teams are chomping at the bit to get the 2009-10 season started, and it should make for an exciting night. Bobcat fans should look for further updates as the date approaches.
