Georgia Basketball will host its second-annual Stegmania presented by Bojangles’ on Friday, October 11, at 7:00 p.m. in Stegeman Coliseum, with both teams taking part.
“Last year’s Stegmania was a tremendous success,” head coach Tom Crean said. “The crowd lined up outside the Coliseum is a memory I’ll never forget, and that night set a tone that resulted in us breaking our total attendance record last season. We’re excited for Bulldog Nation to have the chance to meet this year’s team, with so many new faces. Plans for this year’s Stegmania, including some exciting special guests, promise to make it even more memorable.”
“Stegmania was a huge success last season, and we are so excited to once again showcase our team with this event,” head coach Joni Taylor said. “Our young ladies had an absolute blast last year. I know they are looking forward to participating in all the neat things that surround Stegmania, while giving fans a glimpse of their personalities. This is a tremendous way to tip off college basketball season, so I encourage everyone to be at The Steg on Oct. 11!”
Gates to Stegmania will open at 6:00 p.m. The first 2,000 UGA students in attendance will receive both a commemorative Stegmania t-shirt and Bojangles’. The first 2,000 fans in attendance also will receive a Stegmania t-shirt. Interactive activities for students, families and fans will be set up on the Stegeman concourses.
The program will begin at 7:00 with introductions of both teams and also will include a slam dunk event for the Bulldogs and a 3-point shooting contest for the Lady Bulldogs. The Bulldogs will conduct an intrasquad scrimmage as well. Special guests will include Bill Goldberg.
The festivities will conclude with an autograph session featuring both teams.
