Paint-up and show-up for the PIO Madness event Friday, October 25th at Ban Johnson Arena. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. and the first 500 people receive a rally towel. 

The PIO Madness event is the official start of basketball season and will feature introductions of the men's and women's basketball teams, a slam-dunk showcase, a three-point shootout between a player from each team, and student contests. Glow necklaces and bracelets will be given out so fans can glow in the dark when the lights go out and the blacklights turn on. Glow body paint will also be available starting at 7:45 p.m. outside of the BanJo.

This event is produced by the sport facility and event management class, and underwritten by Athletics, Student Life, the basketball teams, the Sports Business Association and the Sport Management program.
