Junior Guard Omanovic Nominated for Geico Play of the Year

February 04, 2016

Lasell's Armin Omanovic shoots a running half-court buzzer beater, giving Lasell the edge over its GNAC opponent Rivier for a 78-75 score. On January 30, the shot was enough to give his team the win and it was enough to be nominated for this year's GEICO Play of the Year.

Omanovic's is one of four college basketball plays nominated each week for five weeks to be in the running for the GEICO Play of the Year. The winner of each week is determined by the official Facebook page (facebook.com/BestofCollegeBasketball) where fans can vote for their favorite play.

Omanovic's half court buzzer beater, Lebanon Valley's Andy Orr with an alley-oop dunk, and Elmira's Justin Henderson with a three-quarter court, game-winning shot are all up for fan voting from February 1st through Monday. Feb. 8, at 11:59 A.M. CT.

The five finalists will compete in a week-long competition to determine the GEICO Play of the Year. The winner will be announced on March 27 at Noon ET on CBS during the GEICO Best of College Basketball special.
