PSNK basketball teams set for Midnight Madness
The Penn State New Kensington men's basketball team, which produced one of the finest seasons in school history in 2007-08, will meet and greet fans and followers at 10 tonight as part of its Midnight Madness festival at PSNK Athletics Center.
The event will tip off official practice for the season.
Refreshments are free, and there will be contests for fans, including the Alle-Kiski Society $1,000 halftime half-court shot.
Also, a team made up of PSNK men's and women's players will play a campus team of faculty and staff.
Admission is free.
Last season, the PSNK men's team finished sixth in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association Division II Tournament in South Portland, Maine. The Lions (22-6, 19-1) rebounded to take second at the Penn State University Athletic Conference Tournament at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center.
The women's team is looking to return after forfeiting last season due to a shortage of players.
