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.

Rival student sections won't have to work too hard to find ways to rib North Carolina's freshman class the next few years. The newest Tar Heels gave them all the ammunition they'll ever need Friday night when they performed a dance routine at Late Night clad in tights and tutus with Adele playing in the background. North Carolina's returning players opted for either a salsa number, a Broadway routine or a hip-hop dance, but the freshmen apparently preferred ballet. Why the tutus and tour jetes? Tweeted freshman Marcus Paige, "I'd rather not talk about it...lol."
