The North Carolina A&T men's and women's basketball teams start their 2011-12 seasons on Nov. 11, and Aggie fans are ready to show their support.

To usher in the new season, Aggie fans and students are invited to attend the 2011 AGGIE MADNESS BASKETBALL EVENT at Corbett Sports Center, Friday, Oct. 28 at 8:30 p.m. The Aggies swim team will also be introduced.

The host for the evening will be Kyle Santillian of the Santillian and the Wild Out Wake Up Show on 102 JAMZ. Joining Santillian to provide quality entertainment will be the Blue & Gold Marching Machine, the award-winning N.C. A&T band selected to perform in the 2012 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The Aggie Cheerleaders, winners of four out of the last five MEAC Championships, will also be on hand. Music will be provided by a DJ and the noise level will be raised by the Aggie Dawg Pound. There will be giveaways, contests and prizes. The two Aggie basketball teams will also compete in a 3-point shooting contest won by Aggies guard Nic Simpson last season.  

Join us for all the fun as we get excited about the new 2011-12 season!!! Aggie Pride!!!
