MOBILE FRIENDLY WAY TO VOTE

CHICAGO – Sacramento State junior point guard Dylan Garrity's 75-foot game-winning basket against Weber State earlier this month has been nominated for the GEICO Play of the Year, Intersport announced today.

Each week for eight weeks, four 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.

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 that airs March 29 at 11 a.m. PST on CBS.

On Feb. 1, the Hornets defeated conference-leading Weber State, 78-75, in overtime. With the scored tied at 75, and just 0.7 seconds on the clock, Garrity took an inbounds pass from underneath Weber State's basket, and launched a 75-foot shot that hit nothing but net at the buzzer.

The game-winning basket went viral and gave Sacramento State a tremendous amount of national attention. In fact, video of "The Hail Garrity" was featured on numerous websites, including ESPN, CNN, Deadspin, Sports Illustrated, USA Today, Fox News and Sporting News to name a few. It was also the #1 play on SportsCenter's Top 10 Plays that evening.

Garrity's 75-footer is competing against three other plays from Week 7, including a reverse dunk by Illinois' Joseph Bertrand, a break-away slam by Memphis' Geron Johnson and a game-winning jumper by Penn State's D.J. Newbill.
