MUNCIE, Ind. -- Ball State junior foward Majok Majok's buzzer-beating slam vs. Norfolk State on Jan. 2 is nominated for the GEICO Play of the Year, Intersport announced today.
Each week for eight weeks, four incredible college basketball plays will be nominated as the GEICO Play of the Year. Each week's winner will be determined by fan voting through the official Facebook page (facebook.com/BestofCollegeBasketball).
The eight finalists will compete in a week-long competition to determine the GEICO Play of the Year. The winner will be announced during the GEICO Best of College Basketball special which airs April 6 on CBS.
In addition to recognizing the season's top plays, the one-hour CBS special will relive the season's greatest moments, players and traditions. The show reviews the GEICO Best of 2013 Basketball Tour, an interactive fan experience that visits 10 marquee games throughout the basketball season.
With time dwindling and the Cardinals trailing by one, point guard Jesse Berry drove hard to the paint where he scooped a pass to Majok Majok. The big man sprang off the floor and slammed home two points mere moments before the buzzer sounded. Ball State got the win, 62-61. To watch this play on YouTube, visit: http://bit.ly/13NL4G6.
