GoMason Blog: For Women's Basketball, Pictures Are Worth A Thousand Words

Don't miss your first chance to see the 2011-12 George Mason men's and women's basketball teams at Mason Madness to be held on Friday, October 14 at the Patriot Center. Doors will open at 9 p.m., with the event scheduled to begin at 9:30 p.m. Admission is free with general admission seating.

Festivities will include performances by a number of entertainment groups including Doc Nix and the Green Machine, UrbanKnowlogy, Masonettes, the Patriots cheerleading squad and Peter Rabbit with Snap Boogie as seen on NBC's hit show "America's Got Talent".

Fans will hear from men's basketball first-year head coach Paul Hewitt and fourth-year head women's basketball coach Jeri Porter before each member of the 2011-12 teams is introduced. Both teams will take part in on-court activities as the women will challenge each other in a skills competition and the men will play the annual Green vs. Gold scrimmage.
