Georgia Southern Athletics presents "Eagle Madness" to be held October 17, 2019, in Hanner Fieldhouse. The evening will combine the volleyball match versus ULM with a pre-season basketball event.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and volleyball begins at 6:30 p.m. with the basketball event to follow. The basketball event is free for fans of all ages. The general public may purchase tickets to the volleyball match at GSEagles.com/Tickets. Students who pay their athletics fees may enter both events for free with their Eagle ID.
The first 500 students in attendance will receive a free t-shirt. The t-shirts will be given out following the volleyball match. Students who arrive early and attend the volleyball match will receive a voucher to claim their t-shirt at the end of the game. The t-shirts will be given out at the Student Entrance to Hanner Fieldhouse.
Following the volleyball match, fans will be introduced to the 2019-20 men's and women's basketball squads. Players from both teams will then take fans through what it is like to be at a game and remind them of the importance of the Georgia Southern traditions.
The evening continues with a 3-point contest between the men's and women's basketball teams. Two students will then be selected to compete head-to-head in the classic competition.
You can't have a "Madness" event without a Dunk Contest. Men's Basketball will be showing off their high-flying and best all-around dunks for you to judge. Senior Isaiah Crawley had an iconic windmill dunk last season against Little Rock and redshirt-senior Ike Smith is known for driving right down the middle for a one-handed slam.
To round out the evening, both teams will sign autographs on the court. Fans can bring in outside items to be signed and posters will be provided free of charge to those who wish to get one signed. Photos may be taken, but selfies and posed photographs that hold up the line will not be permitted so that everyone can get their items signed in the allotted time.
