Christian Watford hit the 3-point shot back on December 10 that lifted the Hoosiers over then #1 Kentucky. As an Indiana fan, it is one of those video clips you never get tired of watching.
Watford’s shot has now won twice. He won the ESPY for Play of the Year. The winner was picked by fans across the nation who voted on-line for what they considered the play of the year.
I liked what IndyStar.com posted about it: “Watford’s clutch shot from the left baseline at the buzzer was memorable enough to win an ESPY award Wednesday night, being voted ESPN’s Play of the Year. The play will never replace “The Shot” by Keith Smart to defeat Syracuse for a national title in 1987, but the play resonates with fans just the same.”
