Illinois Fans Pull Off “Silent Night” Celebration During Home Opener [Video]

Taylor University is the inventor of one of the greatest college basketball celebrations out there. Their students pack the gym and stay completely silent through the first 9 points of the game. As soon as the tenth point is made the fans go absolutely ballistic. Illinois took a page from their book and tried out the silent night celebration for their home opener against Colgate in which they won 75-55. They made one slight change, nicknaming the celebration “Orange Hush.” You can compare the two celebrations below and see who did it better.
