PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College men's and women's basketball teams will open the season with the traditional Late Night Madness festivities beginning at 10:00 p.m. on Friday, October 12 in the newly renovated Mullaney Gymnasium on the Providence College campus. It will mark the first basketball event in the renovated Mullaney Gym.
Second-year Friar Head Coach Ed Cooley and his squad will be introduced to the public at 10:00 p.m. Doors to the event will open at 9:30 p.m. The event is free and fans attending will receive a 2012 Providence College Late Night Madness t-shirt. Fans are encouraged to arrive early as seating is limited.
Some of the highlights of the night will be a three-point shooting contest and a slam dunk competition featuring members of the men's basketball team. Junior guard Bryce Cotton, who won the 2010 and 2011 slam dunk competitions, will attempt to defend his titles.
