JOHNSON CITY – With the ETSU men’s and women’s basketball seasons set to get underway in less than a month, the ETSU Athletics Department released details on its “Buc Madness,” a preseason tip-off event, on Wednesday, Oct. 20 inside Brooks Gym.
The free event, presented by Johnson City Honda, is open to the general public and will get underway at 7 p.m.
Fans will be treated to a three-point shooting contest and a dunk show, along with various skills competitions. In addition, there will be plenty of opportunities to win prizes, while everyone in attendance will receive the 2021-22 team schedule posters.
This will be the first time prior to the season to see both teams together in action, while first-year head coaches Desmond Oliver and Simon Harris will introduce their respective squads.
