On Tuesday evening and into the wee hours of Wednesday morning, The LeMoyne-Owen College hosted Midnight Madness, a showcase of its 2014 men’s and women’s basketball teams.
The event was part skills showcase, part rap concert, part Greek step show, and all around “a lot of fun, and good for the students,” said second year athletic director Clint Jackson. “It’s good to get the students out of the dorms and here to support our teams.”
