In addition to free pizza for the first 100 fans, the Bears plan on showcasing some of their talent for the upcoming season, running some common drills and playing an intra-squad scrimmage. The Bears will also demonstrate ball-handling and hold a three-point shooting contest.
There will be events planned for the fans, including a halftime shootout and a player challenge. T-shirts will be awarded to those fans who participate against the stars of the 2000-01 Brown squad. The festivities will begin at midnight on Friday night, as Midnight Madness marks the official beginning of the 2000-01 season.
The Bears, coached by Jean Marie Burr, open their season on November 17 at New Hampshire.
