As any college basketball fan with a pulse surely knows, Midnight Madness - Late Night, Hoops Hoopla, Hoops Hysteria or whatever each school wants to call its start-of-practice event - is here.
The events are important to fans. But they are vital to recruiting. This week, we document over 200 weekend visitors.
It's tough to pick just one program to spotlight this weekend, but clearly Kansas (five 5-stars, six 4-stars), Duke (2011's No. 1 Austin Rivers and plenty of other good players), Illinois (all current commitments plus a ridiculous amount of young in-state talent among 20-plus visitors), Indiana (check out all of the in-state talent from 2012-14 expected on hand), Georgetown (heavy-hitting underclassmen), Memphis and suddenly hot again St. John's are a few programs sporting impressive lists of expected weekend visitors.
