CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Opening the doors of newly-renovated Lavietes Pavilion for the first time in 2017, Harvard men's basketball will host the seventh-annual Crimson Madness event Oct. 13 at 7:15 p.m. Admission is free, and the fixture will be broadcast on the Ivy League Network.

This year's event will once again feature a dunk contest, 3-point competition and the annual Crimson and Black scrimmage, as well as a special welcome from The Thomas G. Stemberg '71 Family Endowed Coach for Harvard Men's Basketball Tommy Amaker. The dunk and 3-point competitions are wide open, as last year's champions Zena Edosomwan and Corbin Miller graduated. Senior Zach Yoshor will look for his second title in the 3-point contest after winning the championship in 2015.
Lavietes Pavilion's renovation features a state-of-the-art videoboard, contemporary lighting, brand-new seating and upgraded locker rooms. The facility, originally branded as the Briggs Athletic Center, was built in 1926 and housed a plethora of Crimson teams before being refurbished and rededicated as the home of Harvard basketball in 1982.
Full lineups for both the dunk contest and 3-point competition will be announced closer to the event, as well as rosters for the Crimson and Black teams.
Along with the action on the court, fans in attendance will be treated to free giveaways, free food, student promotions, a postgame autograph session and more!
