Oregon's Jordan Bell dunks over fans at Ducks' Block Party

  Oregon's junior forward Jordan Bell took part in a dunk contest at the Ducks' midnight madness event.

While most people are glued to their television sets in the midst of the Week 7 college football slate, some fans are taking the time to get better acquainted with their school's basketball teams.

For one fan of the Oregon Ducks, that meant getting a close-up with Ducks senior forward Jordan Bell on Saturday during the school's basketball Block Party.

While it may not be the kind of close-up that some would expect, what diehard college basketball fan would really pass up a chance to get dunked on by one of their team's leaders and best players? Good thing the phone was facing the right way while he recorded because this is what Midnight Madness is all about.

The name of the event may change a bit from campus to campus, but the message is the same: Basketball is back. And the main goal is to introduce fans to the men's and women's basketball teams ahead of a long season. Odds are this Ducks fan will have plenty of memories from this night for years to come.
