Taylor University celebrated its annual Silent Night tradition with a win on Friday night.
One of the best traditions in all of college sports, Taylor students come to the game dressed up in elaborate costumes. The Taylor crowd stays completely silent until the team scores its 10th point of the game as they proceed to storm the court for a celebration that stops the game.
The NAIA school in Upland, Indiana has done this for 21 straight years as they moved to 21-0 in Silent Night games with a 97-84 win over Great Lakes Christian on Friday night. Jake Heggeland was the player to break the silence as his free throw at the 16:01 mark sent the fans rushing to the floor.
Mason Degenkolb paced Taylor with 30 points in the win as the Trojans improved to 9-3 on the season.
