UNCW kicks off basketball season, shows off new scoreboard

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Midnite Madness kicked off UNCW's basketball season Friday night at Trask Coliseum.

Students and fans also got their first look at the completed renovation project at the arena. The $2 million renovation project included a new scoreboard, complete with LED screens.

Crews also resurfaced the hardwood and repainted the floors. The coliseum added a new chairback seating area right next to the floor.

The project started in July and just finished up a few days ago.

The first basketball game is in two weeks, on Saturday, Oct. 29. The men's team will play St. Andrews in an exhibition game.
