It's basketball season

It won't be Midnight Madness, but both Jacksonville State basketball teams open practice Friday night.

JSU officials said the men's team will practice in the Annex at 7 p.m., while the women's team will go in Pete Mathews Coliseum at the same time. There will be no formal tip-off celebrations at either.

Then, to drum up interest off Saturday's Homecoming festivities, the men's team will hold an open practice at 11:30 a.m. in the Coliseum.

The JSU men, under the direction of new coach James Green, were picked a distant 10th in the Ohio Valley Conference preseason poll. The JSU women's team, coached by Becky Geyer, was picked fifth in its OVC preseason poll.
