Credit goes to the commenters on this one, the UMHoops 2008-2009 Play of the Year Voting. There are ten nominees, I was originally going to keep out longer stretches but I threw them in there anyways. I guess this is more or less a “moment of the year” rather than a specific play.
The nominees are sorted in chronological order and you can vote at the bottom of the post.
Stu Douglass Three Pointer versus UCLA
DeShawn Sims Backdoor Dunk versus UCLA
DeShawn Sims Buzzer Beater versus Savannah State
Zack Novak Back-to-Back Threes versus Duke
