Taylor University's "Silent Night" continues to be one of the coolest traditions in all of sports.

On the Friday before final exams, the students at the annual basketball game remain quiet until the 10th point is scored. Once that happens, chaos ensues. Singing "Silent Night" later in the game is also part of the festivities.

This year's special game took place against Indiana Dabney, and senior Ben Raichel sent the arena into a frenzy.

Hat tip to Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz of USA Today Sports, via, for the find.
