Columbia, Mo. - Anticipation for the start of the 2007-08 college basketball season is building and Tiger fans anxiously awaiting their first glimpse of Mizzou's Men's and Women's basketball programs can do so on Friday, Oct. 12 at Mizzou Madness inside Mizzou Arena.

Action at Mizzou Madness will get underway at 9 p.m. and doors to the event open at 8 p.m. The first 1,000 students in attendance will receive a free Mizzou Madness T-Shirt and other prizes and give-a-ways will be up for grabs throughout the evening.

Mizzou Madness is scheduled immediately following the annual Rockbridge-Hickman football game and admission (and parking) is free to the general public. Mizzou Basketball is teaming up with the Central Missouri Food Bank and asks fans to donate one canned (food) item per person upon entry. Collection bins will be available at the gates.

A new media feature at this year's Madness will come courtesy of Metro Sports out of Kansas City. A partner of the Mizzou Sports Network, Metro Sports will provide live look-ins and interviews from Mizzou Madness to help the Kansas City-area Tiger fans get a sneak peak of the 2007-08 squad.

Members of the Tiger programs will also be at the Columbia Mall during the Oct. 5 Pep Rally (6:30 p.m.) before the Mizzou Football showdown with Nebraska. Be sure to come out and support your Gridiron Tigers before the ESPN telecast on Saturday evening.
