Maroon Madness Recap

5 Nov

Fans of all ages got a taste of College of Charleston Basketball as the men’s and women’s teams kicked off the 2012-13 season with Maroon Madness presented by the Charleston City Paper on Monday night at TD Arena.

There was plenty of pre-Halloween fun as trick-or-treating took place on the concourse, DJ Natty Heavy spun his tunes and both teams surprising the crowd with choreographed dance routines including their rendition of Gangnam Style.

Senior Andrew Lawrence (London, England) and junior Alyssa Frye (Chester, Va.) won the three-point shooting contest, while freshman Canyon Barry (Colorado Springs, Colo.) was the star of the night winning the slam-dunk competition. Barry, who will redshirt this season, won over the crowd with his one-handed dunk over teammate Bart Benton (Monroe, Ga.), who was seated in the middle of the key, and a ball rack off the pass from sophomore Pat Branin (Richmond, Va.).
