Marshall University fans are invited to attend a special "Herd Madness at the Marriott" on Wednesday, Jan. 14 in Charleston. The pep-rally luncheon is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. in the Pavillion at the Charleston Marriott and is being held in conjunction with the annual Chesapeake Energy Capital Classic basketball doubleheader featuring Marshall and West Virginia.

The luncheon will include pre-game comments from Thundering Herd men's coach Donnie Jones and women's coach Royce Chadwick. Marco and the Marshall cheerleaders will be there to provide some "We Are...Marshall" spirit. All attending will be eligible for assorted door prizes.

The event is being sponsored by the Big Green Scholarship Foundation and the cost of the buffet luncheon is $15 per person. Reservations are encouraged and can be made by calling the Big Green office toll free at 866-443-7310 by noon Monday, Jan. 12.

Game times that evening for the sold out annual MU-WVU contests are 5:30 p.m. for the women's game and 8 p.m. for the men's game.
