Taylor University Silent Night Game 2012

I absolutely love this kinda stuff!!

Taylor University participate in one of the coolest traditions in all of college sports.

Once a year, during a game, the fans sit in absolute silence until – the team scores their 10th point. After that…HELLO!!!

Because of the uniqueness of no noise, there is a lot of pressure on our guys to get that 10th point,” Taylor coach Paul Patterson said in a statement. “And then it gets to be kind of a normal basketball game in a great environment.

Taylor hosts the “Silent Night” game every year on the Friday before fall semester finals week begins. Students afterward attend a campus-wide Christmas party where they eat cookies, listen to the school president read a Christmas story, compete in gingerbread house and cookie-decorating competitions, and watch kids from the community tell Santa what gifts they want.
