  • BG Daily News: Hilltopper Hysteria set for Oct. 17

    Both programs will be introduced and will go through scrimmages on John Oldham Court, but in a change from years past, the men's team will instead go through a full, game-length open scrimmage in front of the Hysteria crowd.

    The Hilltoppers have traditionally hosted a full scrimmage open to the public over Homecoming weekend following Hysteria, but will instead integrate that more detailed annual look at the team into the Hysteria event.

    In addition to both teams' introductions and scrimmages, there will be contests and promotions on the court during breaks in the action. An autograph session on the court will conclude the evening.
