The Kishwaukee College men’s basketball and women’s basketball teams will host a celebratory season kick-off scrimmage event from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday in the Kish Gymnasium. The event, known as “Kougar Madness,” is free and open to the public.

The evening will begin with player introductions followed by a three-point shooting contest and dunk contest, featuring special judge and Kish mascot, Kody the Kougar. Following the opening contests, will be the Women’s and Men’s scrimmages. Throughout the evening, there will be time to meet the players, chat with the coaches, and have Kish players sign autographs. Special guests include local musician and Kish student Dustin Castillo, known as “Happy the Rapper,” and the Kish Kougarettes Cheer and Dance Team.

Friends, family and community members are invited to cheer on the Kougars as they kick off the season. Parking is available in the E parking lot on the west side of campus and guests should enter the gymnasium through door 40.
