Hoops Season Tips off in Style

Sunday, December 15, 2013

It’s showtime! A packed house of 5,308 fans came out to Carnesecca Arena for the Red Storm Tip-Off, celebrating the start of the college basketball season. The crowd got an early look at both the Men’s and Women’s teams, as the players competed in a friendly scrimmage, a slam-dunk contest and three-point-shooting exhibition. Additionally, the night featured a star-studded alumni game and even a performance from Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco.
