2013-2014 PJC Basketball Teams in October Madness

Published or Revised October 10, 2013

October Madness is Paris Junior College’s new way of introducing the women’s and men’s basketball teams to the community this year. The fun evening, beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Oct. 15 at the Hunt Center, will feature the two teams, cheerleader performances, and audience giveaways.

After introducing the Dragons and Lady Dragons, cheerleaders will perform and players will hold a three-point contest. Following a slam dunk contest, the two teams will hold scrimmages followed by more cheers, comments from PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin and an opportunity for audience members to meet the players.

“October Madness is a great opportunity for the community as well as our student body to come out and get a glimpse of our Lady Dragons and Dragons basketball teams and see the results of the hard work they’ve been putting in,” said PJC Women’s Basketball Coach Michael Madrid. “It will get the community, the athletes and the student body in general excited about basketball season.”

“We hope our fans will come out and show their support and have a lot of fun with it,” said PJC Men’s Basketball Coach Chuck Taylor. “This is an opportunity to express our school spirit and allow the community to get to know us better. If you like basketball, you’ll like October Madness.”
