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

Not many 5-foot-9 guys can dunk. Even fewer can perform a back flip. New Mexico guard Jamal Fenton did both in the same sequence. After lobbing the ball over his head from mid-court, Fenton did a back flip, caught his own pass on the bounce and threw down an alley-oop dunk to win New Mexico's slam dunk contest. "We had to end it after that," coach Steve Alford told the Albuquerque Journal. "What else could you do after that dunk? That's YouTube stuff."{YSP:MORE}
