From the University of Missouri
Missouri Basketball announced that it will host Mizzou Madness on Oct. 12 at 7 p.m., officially tipping off practice for the 2012-13 campaign. Admission to the Midnight Madness-style event is free.
Doors to Mizzou Arena open at 6 p.m. and members of the Mizzou basketball teams will be on the concourse signing autographs leading up to the 7 p.m. start time.
Mizzou Madness will feature scrimmages from both the men's and women's programs, as well as contests, games and giveaways.
Parking for the event is also free. Fans can park in the lots adjacent to Mizzou Arena before the event, but will need to have their car removed by 10 p.m. that evening due to the Oct. 13 football game vs. Alabama.
More information regarding Mizzou Madness will be announced later this month.
