Hoping to build hype for hoops, the boys’ and girls’ basketball programs are hosting the second annual Midnight Madness at 7:00 p.m. at The Nest on Wednesday.

Featuring scrimmages, competitions, and performances from Red Rhythm and the cheer squad, the basketball program looks to build hype for the start of the 2018-19 season.

“Just get everybody excited about the upcoming season,” head boys’ basketball coach Stephen Friar said. “We have two very good programs here and just build school spirit. Year one was very good for us. Year two will hopefully build on that and next year to build on this year. We have a little bit more fan involvement this year. We have some things where people from the stands can participate in certain thing and we have a couple more tweaks to our introductions.”

Wednesday’s Midnight Madness building off last year’s inaugural event.

“Last year was the first year that we did it so this year it’ll probably flow a little bit smoother,” senior Mara Casey said. “People maybe know what to expect a little bit more. I think it’ll be the same sort of idea.”

For Red Rhythm, the event goes beyond building hype for basketball.

“We are being there tonight because we are supportive team and it’ll be good entertainment for everyone to see,” sophomore Medha Gupta said. “We are doing a pom routine. It should hype the crowd. More people to try out for Red Rhythm it’s kind of like us scouting people. It’s also people just liking our routine and complimenting us because we work really hard.”
