OWINGS MILLS, Md. – The Stevenson University men's and women's basketball programs will hold their annual Mustang Madness event to kick off the 2017-18 season on Friday, October 20 at 7:00 pm at Owings Mills Gymnasium.

With Halloween coming up, there will also be a Halloween costume contest, with fans encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes.  The top costumes will be selected with final voting on the winner done by the basketball teams.  There will also be several other contests and games throughout the event.

The Mustang men's and women's basketball teams will be introduced and will take part in a three-point shooting contest along with randomly selected fans.
