WATCH: Taylor University Basketball’s ‘Silent Night’ Tradition

A college basketball game is one of the last places on the planet you’d expect to find peace and quiet. But during Taylor University’s annual Silent Night, you can hear a pin drop – until the Trojans score their tenth point of the game.

Then the crowd erupts. Take a look below:

According to Deadspin, the tradition has been around for more than 20 years. It always takes place on the Friday before final exams, and also includes the singing of “Silent Night” and a campus-wide Christmas party after the game.
