Tennessee basketball announces Market Square Madness fan event to kick off 2022-23 season – Knoxville News Sentinel


Tennessee’s preseason basketball fan celebration is back, and it has a new name.
UT athletics announced Market Square Madness on Tuesday, an event for fans to see the Vols and Lady Vols on Thursday, Oct. 13.
Tennessee hasn’t hosted a preseason basketball fan event since Rocky Top Tip-off, which ran for three seasons before the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the event in 2020. Instead of hosting the new event in Thompson-Boling Arena, the basketball teams are heading to Market Square.

The event begins at 8 p.m., but fans can show up as early as 7 to take photos with Smokey and the Tennessee spirit squads, get faces painted and play on-court contests. After the Tennessee dance team performs, DJ Sterl will introduce the 2022-23 teams. The players will then compete in various skills challenges with fan contests throughout the event, which will end with fireworks at 9.
Admission is free and fans are encouraged to park in the surrounding garages, which will also be free after 7.
The Lady Vols will begin the season with a home exhibition game against Carson-Newman on Oct. 30, while the Vols open the season against Tennessee Tech on Nov. 7 at Thompson-Boling Arena.
