With college basketball season less than a month away, Tiffin University will be going mad.
The school's men's and women's basketball teams will be hosting "Dragon Madness" at the Gillmor Center at 9 p.m. today, as a way to introduce this year's squads to the students and community.
Attendees will have a chance to win prizes such as an iPad 2, a $100 Amazon Gift Card and $300 worth of books at the TU bookstore.
The teams also will participate in obstacle courses, a 3-point shooting contest, a dunk contest and a post shooting contest.
After those events, the TU men's team will hold a 25-minute scrimmage.
"We want to do something for our campus, but also reach out to the community and get them excited about our basketball," said TU women's coach Pam Oswald.
At about 9 p.m., the men's and women's basketball teams will be introduced. Also introduced will be third-grader Sam Roszman, who is battling a tumor.
Roszman will sign a letter of intent to join the men's basketball team.
Roszman received an invitation to become part of the men's team last month. TU participates in Team IMPACT, a non-profit organization which works to improve the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic diseases.
First-year Tiffin men's basketball coach Jerry Buccilla called Roszman an "inspiration to our guys."
Roszman's signing is expected to take place near the beginning of the event.
