Midnight Madness is Coming!


More on DePaul and Loyola's events after the jump.

It is almost time for college basketball season. You can feel it in the air and DePaul and Loyola have announced the timetable for their kickoff events this season. Like last season I'll be covering both events. (That's a photo of former Blue Demons Will Walker at last season's event.) 
I don't even have to come up with some split-time magic act in order to go to both. You can catch both too if you'd like. DePaul's will be next Friday, October 15 from 8-9 p.m. at McGrath Arena. There is an open practice the next day too from 1-3 p.m. Both events include both the Men's and Women's teams.
Loyola's event will take place the same night, but doesn't start until 10 p.m. at the Gentile Center on Loyola's campus. Heck, you can take the El from Fullerton to Loyola in that much time. (I intend to do just that, so expect live blogs from both.) 
Both events will have dunk contests and scrimmages. It's a great way to get a first look at the team and to see some familiar and some new players. It's also an announcement that basketball is back!
