Experience Eagle Madness on Election Night

College basketball is back!

UMW Athletics will host Eagle Madness, a midnight madness-style event presented by Chick-Fil-A in Rosner Arena at the Anderson Center on Election Day, Nov. 8, 2016, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., with a unique opportunity for children beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Vote UMW for more CAC Championships and get ready to #RockTheRoz in 2016-2017!

Admission to “Eagle Madness” is FREE. Throughout the night UMW Athletics will raffle off prizes and run several contests on the court with both fans and players! Don’t miss the 3-point contest between the women’s and the men’s sharpshooters and the grand finale half-court shot, where one lucky fan could go home with a very big check!
