It’s down to crunch-time in the voting process for Best Play at this year’s ESPY Awards. As you know, Christian Watford’s buzzer-beater to upset Number 1 ranked Kentucky has been nominated, torn through the bracket-style voting, and is currently battling in the Final Four. Now we need the help of Hoosier Nation to put C.Wat on that stage tomorrow night. Voting opened yesterday and continues up until the live show tomorrow at 9 p.m. (contrary to some beliefs that voting ended last night). The link to vote is here: C.Wat For The Win.
The play has already been named college basketball’s Play of the Year by GEICO and will remain one of the greatest moments in the history of Indiana basketball. The lone blemish on the UK Childcats’ record last year was secured when a fantastic team effort resulted in Watford draining the long-range trey ball for the win. The biggest student section in the country erupted and flooded the floor of Assembly Hall in an ocean of Cream and Crimson. Watford’s heroic shot, the perfect feed from Verdell, the screen from Cody, and the great spacing from Victor and Jordan deserves to go down in history as the Best Play of 2012. If you want to relive the moment before you cast vote(s) from your laptop, home desktop, phone, iPad, Kindle Fire, and then repeat that process with your friends’ and neighbors’ devices, you can find the YouTube video here.
Let this moment last forever. Let the voice of Hoosier Nation be heard worldwide.
