With music blaring and anticipation building, students of Cabrini College entered the Nerney Field House with high hopes of what Midnight Madness had in store for them.
Midnight Madness has traditionally been the pep rally-like ceremony that introduces the winter sports team to the entire college community. The overall night was considered a success by many, especially those who are members of the Student Government Association, organizers of the event.
With such a light number of members of the senior class, the Class of 2007 missed out on the opportunity to see one of the funniest basketball games of all times: faculty versus students. This game is anticipated by many and students cheered on their peers.
This year was one of the only years when the faculty actually put the students to shame with a score of 34-28.
The men’s head basketball coach, Matthew Macciocca, and admissions counselor Saleem “the dream” Brown were two of the faculty all-stars. The rest of the team consisted of members of coaching staff for the men’s basketball team along a few alums.
The student-faculty basketball game was exciting, but couldn’t compare to the highly amped performance of the Cabrini Dance Team. The girls were movin’ and shakin’ to some of the hottest songs today.
With new uniforms, new girls and a new look, the ladies of the dance team had the crowd screaming for a crowd-pleasing close out to Midnight Madness.
