Paine Basketball Holds "Lions Madness" Event

Posted: Updated:

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The Paine College men's and women's basketball teams were on display for the first time this season during the annual Lions Madness presented by Marco's Pizza on Tuesday, Oct. 22 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The event was held at the HEAL Complex and is open and free to the public. 

The festivities included a half-court shot followed by performances throughout the evening by the Lions Cheerleaders and the Mahogany Essence Dance Team.

Willie Adams, entering his fourth year as head coach (18th on Paine College staff), has the Lady Lions poised for a return to the top of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) during this campaign. He returns seven letterwinners from last year's squad and adds three first-year players. The Lady Lions finished the year 12-16 overall, but went down in the second round of the SIAC tournament. Paine opens the season on Saturday, November 16 at home versus Morris College.

Link returns for his third season at the helm of the Paine program. Last year the Lions finished 14-15 and made it to the SIAC conference tournament semifinals for the second year in a row. Overall, the Lions return nine letterwinners and add nine newcomers for the 2013-14 season. Paine opens the season on the road in Melbourne, Fla., before returning home on Nov. 15 to take on Fayetteville State University. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:00 pm.
