Basketball Teams Kick Off 2019-20 Season with Panther Madness Thursday Night

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio Dominican's men's and women's basketball teams opened their 2019-20 season hosting fans, students, faculty and staff to Alumni Hall for Panther Madness Thursday evening.

The teams began the night being introduced before competing in the Dairy Queen Skills Challenge, McDonald's Shooting Star competition and the RadiODU Dunk Contest. Several raffles were also offered throughout the event for all who attended.

In the DQ Skills Challenge and the McDonald's Shooting Star competition, a player from each team was selected to team up and compete against each other.

The winners of the DQ Skills Challenge were freshman Alek West (Sylvania, Ohio) of the men's team and senior Brittleigh Macaulay (Big Prairie, Ohio) of the women's team. The McDonald's shooting star competition was won by redshirt freshman Matt Hall (Evanston, Illinois) and junior Bailey Williams (Dublin, Ohio) later in the evening and sophomore Caleb Strohmeier (Edwardsville, Illinois) won the RadiODU Dunk Contest to cap the night.
