Gopher Basketball Best Play of the Year

I realized that yesterday I got so caught up in the process of voting I didn’t even mention what the Best Play to vote for was. I am sure most Gopher basketball fans remember the Gopher Indiana Hoosier game last March when Blake Hoffarber sunk the buzzer beater to stun Indiana 59-58. It wasn’t just an ordinary shot though, it was a 15 foot shot off a half court pass and Blake was falling as he was making the shot. It was a beauty and truly deserves the ESPY Award so fans better get out there and vote!

This isn’t even Blake Hoffarbers first ESPY award. In 2005, Blake Hoffarber sunk a shot while lying on his back on the Target Center floor to help his Hopkins High School team win the Minnesota State high school boys basketball championship. I think you would have to live under a rock if you don’t remember that play. It was amazing and the news played it over and over and over. You may not remember that is was Blake, but it was. He has a golden touch when it comes to those beautiful buzzer shots.
