Seriously...Who is this Guy?

Blake Hoffarber.

Freshman guard for the Minnesota Golden Gophers, and the man behind the greatest end to a basketball game I've ever seen in person. Hoffarber took a full-court pass with 1.5 seconds left and sank Indiana's Big Ten Tournament hopes straight up Laettner style.

You have to blame IU coach Dan Dakich for this one, or whoever it is on the Hoosier staff in charge of watching film. A simple Google search for this kid might have turned up this charming little play from Hoffarber's high school days.

Damn, how do you let that happen...again? This kid seems to be good with full-court, baseball passes in tournament games with improbable, ludicrous, buzzer-beater style. Who knew?
