Best of Midnight Madness: Arizona State guard puts on a show

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

Torian Graham won't play for Arizona State in an actual game until the 2016-17 season, but on Friday night the explosive transfer guard gave Sun Devils fans reason to believe he might be worth the wait. Graham won the dunk contest at Arizona State's Midnight Madness event with a pair of jaw-dropping slams. In the first one, he leaped over 6-foot-1 teammate Shannon Evans with ease and threw down a one-handed dunk. In the second, he pulled off a nasty 270-degree spinning slam. A former top 50 recruit who had scholarship offers from the likes of Indiana, Louisville, Georgetown and Oregon, Graham has at onetime been committed to or enrolled at NC State, Houston and Buffalo but has never played in a Division I game. He'll have one year of eligibility at Arizona State.
