Winter Madness brings alumni together
About 600 Binghamton University alumni and friends attended Winter Madness, held on Saturday, Jan. 30, at the West Gym on campus. The event was an indoor tailgate party sandwiched between two home basketball games.
In the early afternoon, the women's team defeated Albany 65-60. After the tailgate, the men's team outlasted New Hampshire 76-73 in an overtime thriller before a season-high Events Center crowd of 4,811 fans.
Winter Madness took over the entire West Gym, and offered Bearcat fans a choice of a barbecue buffet or a dollar menu, consisting of traditional sports concession items. Steve Max, whose Simon Sez game was a hit at Late Nite Madness last October, made a return appearance. Men's and women's coaches and players - as well as Bearcats spirit squads - were on hand to entertain and mingle with the crowd.
