Previous basketball preseason events like Midnight Madness and Hoosier Hysteria have provided a number of fun moments.

In 2014, Indiana's dunk contest drew plenty of "oohs" and "aahs."

The year before, Hanner Mosquera-Perea dunked two balls at once during Hoosier Hysteria.

Also last year, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo came out dressed as a member of the classic rock band KISS.

In 2013, Michigan State's Tom Izzo "got launched" into the Midnight Madness basketball festivities.

In 2012, Izzo and his family made a "Marvel-ous" entrance.

And in 2011, Izzo was 'Top Gun."
