Top moments from Iowa's Midnight Madness

Iowa basketball fans were treated to a fun night of festivities as Fran McCaffery’s team was introduced to the public at the Hawkeyes’ Black and Gold Blowout event on Friday evening. The night’s events included a team introduction, a dunk contest and a full scrimmage.

There were several standout performances throughout the night, but it was Iowa junior Gabe Olaseni who stole the show.

Olaseni threw down a Michael Jordan-like dunk after taking off from the free throw line and throwing it down with one hand:

Friday night was also an opportunity for Iowa fans to see incoming freshman guard Peter Jok, who is expected to play a large role for the Hawkeyes’ this season.

Take a look at Jok’s two-handed slam in the intrasquad scrimmage.
