PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State University men's and women's basketball teams will hold ZZUmania Friday, Oct. 12 at Bohler Gym for the fourth-straight year, to celebrate the official start of the 2012-13 season. Activities begin at 9 p.m., with doors opening at 8 p.m. Admission is free and the first 250 fans will each receive a free t-shirt.
The event will kick off with a performance by the WSU cheer team and National Champion Crimson Girls, followed by introductions of women's basketball head coach June Daugherty and men's basketball head coach Ken Bone and their 2012-13 teams. After introductions, the women's team will hold a three-point contest and crown a new long-range champion. The men's basketball team will be showcasing their skills in a team scrimmage, and wowing the crowd with a high-flying slam dunk contest.
One student will have a chance to win $500 from Crimson and Gray for spring semester books, and everyone will have a chance to win two courtside seats to the men's basketball game against Gonzaga, Dec. 5. Students will be able to sign up for ZZU CRU at the event and pick up their t-shirts if they've signed up but not received their shirt.
