STEPHENVILLE, TX – More than 3,000 Tarleton State Basketball fans swarmed Wisdom Gym late Monday evening, welcoming both TexAnn and Texan Basketball squads at 12:01 a.m. as part of Tarleton’s annual Midnight Madness event.

The women’s team took the court first and displayed their choreography skills with a dance before being introduced to the crowd and warming up. The men’s team followed and dazzled the crowd with a variety of dunks before it was introduced to the fans.

The Texans and TexAnns can now officially participate in team drills according to NCAA rules.

The Texans, who are coming off a 20-10 season in which it won the Lone Star Conference Championship Tournament, will open up the 2013-14 season on Monday, Nov. 9, against Southwestern Adventist. The TexAnns, who finished last season 19-10 overall, will also open up the season on Nov. 9, hosting Howard Payne in an exhibition game. The TexAnns’ first official game will be Nov. 13 against St. Mary’s.
