UConn Fans Can Vote Right for Ryan Boatright

Remember Ryan Boatright's awe-inspiring alley-oop dunk from Shabazz Napier back on Jan. 12 at Notre Dame? The one that allowed UConn to "shut (the Notre Dame fans) up" immediately after Jack Cooley's putback slam?

Well, it's been nominated for the GEICO Play of the Year, according to Intersport. Each week for eight weeks, four college hoops plays will be nominated for 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 that airs April 6 on CBS.

*** Elsewhere: It appears UConn may have picked up a future 6-foot-7 banger in the form of its latest football recruit. Jordan Fuchs of Christ the King High (Omar Calhoun's alma mater) has signed on to play tight end for the Husky football program, but apparently is hoping to play hoops in a couple of years, as well, according to Zach Braziller of the New York Post.
