Best of Midnight Madness: Missouri’s Keion Bell leaps six people for a dunk

Midnight Madness produces some memorable moments each year, so The Dagger is chronicling the best ones from Friday's lineup all weekend. If you spot something we missed, let us know here or here.

One of the most jaw-dropping dunks of Midnight Madness was merely routine for the guy who delivered it. Two years ago at Pepperdine, guard Keion Bell positioned three teammates and four others from tallest to shortest between the free-throw line and the rim, took a running start and cleared all seven people for a one-handed dunk. Bell, who transferred to Missouri last year, pulled off the same dunk at the Tigers' Midnight Madness on Friday night, only this time he leapt over six people. It didn't matter though. Bell's effort was plenty good enough to awe his teammates and give him the team slam dunk crown.
