The anticipation for the 2014-15 CSUN men’s and women’s basketball teams has been high since the end of their respective seasons back in March. With the women’s team winning the Big West Conference and advancing to the NCAA Tournament, and the men going to the conference tournament’s final seconds before coming up short of playing in March Madness, CSUN fans are hoping for even bigger things in the coming season.
So when given the first chance to see the new editions of these teams at Matador Madness on Oct. 3, students and alumni packed The Matadome was packed with students and alumni. The energy was great, with Power 106 personality Yesi Ortiz as the host and DJ Malski pumping up the volume on the music. With player introductions, words of encouragement from coaches Reggie Theus and Jason Flowers and an impromptu scrimmage from the men’s team on the new Blacktop, the night was a high-octane preview of things to come. Here are photos from the evening.
