CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard men's basketball tips off the 2016-17 season with the sixth-annual Crimson Madness event Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. for pre-madness, where the first 100 students will receive free jerseys.
This year's event will once again feature a dunk contest, 3-point competition and the annual Crimson and Black scrimmage. Senior Zena Edosomwan returns as the defending dunk contest champion after channeling his inner Michael Jordan a year ago. Edosomwan leapt over four fans to slam home the winning dunk. In the 3-point contest, Corbin Miller – the 2014 champion – and Zach Yoshor - the 2015 title holder - are set to battle in 2016.
Full lineups for both the dunk contest and 3-point competition will be announced closer to the event, as well as rosters for the Crimson and Black teams. A special guest Emcee, judges for the dunk contest, and broadcast information will also be announced in coming weeks.
Along with the action on the court, fans in attendance will be treated to free giveaways, free food, student promotions, a postgame autograph session and more!
