In lieu of Midnight Madness, Florida will hold a "Shooting with the Stars" basketball fan-interactive event on Oct. 24 at the O'Connell Center.

Gates at the O-Dome will open at 4:30 p.m., with both the men's and women's team autographing Florida basketball team posters from 5-6 p.m.

A number events will follow from 6-6:30 p.m., including a half-court shot contest in which the prize will be a trip to the Southeastern Conference men's basketball tournament next year in Tampa.

The men's and women's squads will then participate in a "Dancing With The Stars" exhibition. Men's players will be paired up with members of the Florida dance team and the women's players will be paired up with male cheerleaders.
