Moby Madness tips off basketball season tonight

October 2, 2013

Fans can get a free sneak preview of what's coming up during basketball season when CSU hosts Moby Madness tonight at Moby Arena.

Larry Eustachy returns for his second season as coach of the CSU men's team.Both the men’s and women’s teams are looking for big things this season.

The men’s team, under the direction of second-year coach Larry Eustachy, is coming off of one of the most successful campaigns in school history. The Rams won a school-record 26 games, won their first NCAA Tournament game in more than 20 years and had their first All-American – senior Colton Iverson – in more than 50 years.

The women’s team, led by second-year coach Ryun Williams, has a largely rebuilt roster that should help the Rams in their quest for a Mountain West championship.

Among the scheduled activities:

  • Introductions of both squads
  • Question-and-answer sessions
  • Skills competitions, 3-point contests and a high-flying dunk competition by the CSU men
  • Crowd-participation games for fans of all ages
  • Performances by the CSU's award-winning spirit squads and band
  • An autograph session for fans following the event

Get there early

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for the free, family-friendly event at Moby Arena, with the 90-minute program beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Both teams open the season Nov. 8, hosting CU-Colorado Springs in a men’s-women’s doubleheader.
