NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Fans will get their first look at the 2008-09 Yale men's and women's basketball teams on Friday night as Yale hosts Midnight Madness at the John J. Lee Amphitheater. The first 300 people in attendance will receive a free T-shirt. The festivities begin at 11 p.m. with contests and games for the Yale student body. At 11:59 p.m, the lights will go out and the teams will be introduced. That will be followed by a skills competition, including a Slam Dunk Contest. The night concludes with one lucky student, drawn at random, getting the chance to win an all-expenses paid Spring Break trip for two.
The Yale men's basketball team opens the season by hosting Stanford on Nov. 14 at 7 p.m., while the women's play their first home game on Nov. 18 against Bucknell at 7 p.m.
