For Blake Hoffarber, Christian Laettner is Old Hat
After watching Minnesota beat Indiana on their version of the Christian Laettner play, You’d think Blake Hoffarber has done something like that before. You’d be right. First off, congrats are in order to Tubby Smith for his turnaround job he did with the Gophers. Tubby’s Gophers went 20-12 this year, a vast improvement over the 9-22 from 2007.
Alas, the Gophers didn’t make the Big Dance but they should be one of the favorites to win the NIT. And after 9-22, I think the Gophers faithful will take that.
OK, enough about Tubby.
Let’s enjoy the brilliance of his guard, Blake Hoffarber and his last second miracle(s). Bonus: this clip also features Hoffarber’s ESPY-winning shot from he made after falling to the floor, catching it and shooting (while he’s still sitting).
Ah, isn’t March grand?
