Now that you’re just settling into football season, why not start getting pumped up for college hoops to tip off? That’s what you can do at the annual and alliterative Kraziness in the Kennel, which gives you a first look at the Gonzaga men’s basketball team for the 2016-17 season. Quick refresher: Sabonis, Wiltjer and McClellan are all gone, but big man Przemek Karnowski is back, along with a cast of talented transfers and incoming freshmen. At this free event, you’ll see the team compete in three-point and dunk contests, as well as face off in the Blue-on-White scrimmage. You can come back the following week on Oct. 15 at 4 pm for the Fan Fest, which includes autographs and a chance to meet the women’s team.
Sat, Oct. 8; doors at 3, starts at 4 pm • Free and open to the public • McCarthey Athletic Center • 801 N. Cincinnati • gozags.com
