St. Bonaventure will kick off the 2018-19 basketball season with Bona Fan Jam, a free event open to all fans, on Saturday, Oct. 20, beginning at 6:00.
Due to the forecast of cooler temperatures and rain showers, the outdoor events, which were to have been held from 4-6 p.m., have been cancelled.
Starting at 6, the Bonnies men's and women's basketball teams will be introduced during a midnight madness-style event. The agenda will include videos, introductions of both teams, a Shooting Stars contest, finish the highlight contest, the SBU cheerleaders and Reilly the Bona Wolf, performances by the Step Team and Hip-Hop Team and an autograph session with players from both teams. The 2018-19 schedule posters will also be available during the autograph session free of charge.
The Reilly Center concession stand and RC Café will be open throughout the event.
St. Bonaventure students who attend Bona Fan Jam will receive vouchers for the traditional Wolfpack T-shirts, which they can redeem at the season-opening doubleheader on Nov. 2 at the RC.
