SlipperStillfits.com - Even though it feels like it has been an eternity...I'm still a bit stunned we are THIS close to the return of Gonzaga basketball.  Ready or not, practice will kick off on Friday, October 15th and it will do so with a bang.  ESPN will return to Spokane for the second time in three years to cover the Bulldogs' version of "Midnight Madness".  ESPNU will blanket the nation as college basketball kicks off.  In addition to Kraziness in the Kennel, the worldwide leader will also be on the campuses of Duke, Kentucky, Memphis and Kansas State to cover their first practice of the year.

ESPNU's coverage of midnight madness will span fours hours and will kick off at 6 PM pacific.  Gonzaga will begin their festivities at 6:30 PM.  Doors will open to the public at 5:30 and this event is completely first come, first serve.  I'm sure the lines will begin to form early and grow exponentially so get out there early if you want to cram into the 6,000 seat McCarthy Athletic Center.
