The temperatures are starting to drop (eventually), and the leaves are starting to change colors, which means basketball season is just about ready to get underway at colleges and universities around the country including the University of Southern Indiana who will host their annual Midnight Madness event this Friday night at the Physical Activities Center!

The event is free and open to the public, and will feature introductions of all members of both the men's and women's basketball teams, performances by the USI Cheer and Dance squads, a dunk contest, free food, a t-shirt giveaway, and more.

Doors open at 9:00 p.m. with the festivities scheduled to begin at 9:30.

The USI Athletic Department shared the following hype videos to help fans get pumped for the season.
