Basketball fans of all ages are invited to attend the show’s taping on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 6:30pm at the Camp Randall Memorial Shell, the recreational basketball facility on campus near the stadium. Each week, the show travels to a different Big Ten campus and profiles the basketball “vibe” at each institution.
“Big Ten Hoops on Campus” is hosted by Big Ten Network anchor Mike Hall and former All-American and NBA All-Star Jimmy Jackson. This week’s episode features an inside look at the Wisconsin basketball program with special appearances by the UW Spirit Squad, Bucky Badger, and the UW Band. Plus, UW students can win great prizes including autographed items, game tickets, basketball gear and more!
The show’s production staff is also looking for participants to take part in a Slam Dunk and 3-Point Shooting contest during the show’s taping. UW Students are encouraged to contact Emily at Emily@teamworksmedia.com for an opportunity to showcase their basketball skills on national TV. Or, just show up to the open try-out on Wednesday, Feb. 10 at the Shell at 8 p.m.
