The CMU basketball programs had their annual ‘Maverick Madness’ in the Brownson Arena Thursday night to hype up their upcoming seasons.
There was a three-point contest that was won by women’s sophomore Elly Walters who scored 16 points in the finals against Sam Goulet.
Then there was a dunk contest that was overrun by 6’7″ freshman Jonathan Nchekwube who took the crown.
The women were picked to repeat as RMAC champs and start their season November 2 on the road against the University of Denver for an exhibition game.
The men were picked to finish eighth in the preseason coaches poll and will kick off the season November 8 against St. Edwards University in the D2 Conference challenge.
