Troy University director of basketball operations coach Mike Worley spoke about Troy Men’s Basketball at the Student Government Association meeting Tuesday night.
Worley encouraged student involvement in the upcoming Trojan Madness event held in the Trojan Arena Thursday, Oct. 23.
The event, sponsored and catered by Chick-fil-A, will start at 6:30pm. The men’s and women’s basketball teams will be in attendance for the event, which will include a 3-point shooting contest, a dunk contest and a fan participation contest. Three big prizes will be rewarded at the end of the event.
“We felt like if we did a madness night where we got all of the students involved, it would get the word out about the basketball team. We need you guys (the students) in the stands to help us, and student participation and support kicks off at this event,”Worley said.
The SGA placed two new organizations’constitutions on docket: the Troy University Trojan Thunders Cricket Club and the Troy University Russian Club.
