The March Madness Tip-Off takes place on Saturday, March 21 from 6-9 PM in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
Basketball Society announced the date last week for the second annual event at New Brunswick High School.
The event is designed to capture the energy and essence of March Madness with contests, prizes, performances, and more for the community to enjoy wholesome and unique basketball entertainment.
With a lot of help we made history last year. New Brunswick hasn’t seen something like that before and people have been talking about it ever since. We have some new stuff in store for year two and are committed to making it a real staple going forward. – Basketball Society founder Martin Soaries
Sponsors include the Central Jersey Community Development Corporation, First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens and the dfree® Global Foundation.
