Midnight Madness produces some memorable moments each year, so The Dagger is chronicling the best ones from Friday's lineup all weekend. If you spot something we missed, let us know here or here.

Super Bowl halftime shows have nothing on Big Blue Madness. At the start of Kentucky's annual season tipoff event, the school thrilled a jam-packed Rupp Arena crowd by transforming the basketball floor into a 92-foot projection screen. The three minute video displayed everything from highlights from Kentucky's eight national championship banners, to highlights from past players, to images of the current Wildcats. Only Kentucky has the creativity and the cash to make its court into giant blue smart phone screen.
