UNO Basketball hosts “Maverick Madness”

Thursday October 29 the UNO Men’s and Women’s Basketball Teams hosted an event called “Maverick Madness” at the new Baxter Arena for fans to meet the teams, win prizes and pick up their season tickets. The event was open to students, fans, and all community members to showcase this years teams and create hype for not only the upcoming basketball season, but also the opening of Baxter Arena.

Both the Men’s and Women’s team played a 10 min scrimmage game, competed in 3-point shootouts, & a slam dunk contest. One of the students in the audience got the chance win free UNO tuition by shooting a layup, free throw, 3-point shot, and a half court shot in 45 seconds. Other Maverick fans won gift cards to the “Maverick Locker Room” where they can pick our UNO gear and accessories. They also kicked off Homecoming week by announcing all of the candidates in UNO’s Homecoming court.

Afterwards the players of both teams had a Meet and Greet with their fans. They signed autographs and took pictures with children.
