Event: Maroon Madness, Reed Arena, 10/12/07
The Texas A&M men’s and women’s basketball teams opened their first official day of practice with hip-hop recording artist Soulja Boy starring as the guest performer at Maroon Madness 2007. With admission free to all A&M fans, the event became the hardest ticket to come by in town creating a frenzy in the College Station-Bryan area. Maroon Madness and Reed Arena was definitely the place to be in mid-October. Soulja Boy performed his No. 1 smash single, “Crank That” along with other musical selections prior to both teams’ participation in drills, a two-ball competition and a dunk contest.
