Midnight madness previews, in videos


NOTE: This item is largely borrowed and/or stolen from SB Nation DC. Thanks for doing the hard work on this, fellas.

Several weeks after the Wizards pulled off their version of Midnight Madness, the colleges will get involved on Friday night. DCist has a nice rundown of the particulars at each local school, though for some reason, no schools located five hours down I-81 are included.

Fortunately, though, there are at least four official videos that are also previewing the festivities. Georgetown is promising an appearance by Wale. George Washington is promising the "Jo-Jo Man Dance." Gary Williams is promising "a lot of surprises; I'm involved in one of the surprises." George Mason is promising a dunk contest.

I think it's pretty clear which of the 4 is superior.

Clearly, the one that's won a National Championship this millenium.

Clearly, the one that's won a National Championship this millenium.....and who invented this Midnight Madness phenomenon.

It nice that Gtown wins something after getting smacked around by Ohio in the tourney last year.

Go cuse.

Forget the bells and whistles - the list of targeted recruits that are coming to the Georgetown Midnight Madness is INSANE.

They've had a couple off years lately, but Thompson III is still building a powerhouse program. Really fun to have it in the area.

Hate to say it, but Wale is a f'n sell out. Dude is from Mo County and reps PG. How does he not go to UMD midnight madness? I love they show GA Ave in that Hoya preview, lily-white Hilltop students couldnt find GA Ave with a map.

Disappointing man.

Wow, Jpfterps and Barno agree on something. Wale, you are better than this.

The GA Ave. Clip is from the Chillin video, it wasnt put in there to say anything about gtown.

Wale isnt going to the UMD Midnight Madness because UMD probably didnt ask him to.

Regardless Gtown, despite its student population (which is wayyyy more diverse than people make it out to be), is much more connected to black culture and DC culture than the Terps- by a long shot.

@thediesel

does it really matter how many highly touted recruits JT3 brings in? hasnt he done that for years? and dont they still lose in march?

i would love if gary got some of the big name recruits, but honestly i prefer gary and his band of merry men that no ones ever heard of because gary can actually coach and get the best out of his team.
