Former Orange point guard Scoop Jardine will co-host the event with Jasmine Jordan, an SU student and daughter of former NBA star Michael Jordan. Rapper Wale will be the event’s featured entertainment. Orange Madness begins in the Carrier Dome at 8 p.m., and tickets are free to the public.
The event, which kicks off the 2012-13 men’s and women’s basketball seasons, will be televised on ESPNU and ESPN3. SU will be one of seven men’s basketball programs to have its Midnight Madness featured on the network.
Coming off a 34-3 season and a an Elite Eight loss, Syracuse will be without Jardine, as well as small forward Kris Joseph, center Fab Melo and guard Dion Waiters. Joseph and Melo were both selected by the Boston Celtics in the NBA Draft. Waiters was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The men’s team will play a scrimmage and participate in a dunk contest, while the women’s team will run through drills among other activities.
