Midnight Madness via Twitter & Instagram

Never mind that official, NCAA-approved basketball practices have been underway for the last two weeks. In the eyes of many fans, the college hoops season doesn't really get going until Midnight Madness. From championship-certified powerhouses like Georgetown to rookie D-I programs like Grand Canyon, the spectacle of Midnight Madness is an annual tradition at campuses across the country.

Seattle U hosted its Midnight Madness at the Connolly Center on Friday night. The event was a showcase for coach Joan Bonvicini's women's team that is looking to defend its Western Athletic Conference regular-season title, and coach Cameron Dollar's men's team that was picked to finish in second place in the WAC coaches' preseason poll.

Here is a recap of the night provided by the Twitter and Instagram community:
