CHICAGO - Siena sophomore guard Rakeem Brookins' step-back 3-pointer to beat Canisius on Jan. 11 is nominated for the GEICO Play of the Year, Intersport announced on Jan. 28. Each week for eight weeks, four incredible 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 (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 which airs April 6 on CBS.

In addition to recognizing the season's top plays, the one-hour CBS special will relive the season's greatest moments, players and traditions. The show reviews the GEICO Best of 2013 Basketball Tour, an interactive fan experience that visits 10 marquee games throughout the basketball season.

Tied at 54 with time running out vs. Canisius, Siena's Brookins drove on the wing looking for space. The defense was good, forcing Brookins to step back behind the arc and launch a prayer. It hit nothing but the bottom of the net as the buzzer sounded, giving Siena the 57-54 win. To watch this play on YouTube, CLICK HERE.

Brookins' buzzer-beater is competing against three other plays from week three, high-flying alley-oop by UCONN's Ryan Boatright, a deep game-tying stunner by Ole Miss' Marshall Henderson and a running 3-pointer for the win by Bradley's Walt Lemon Jr.

To watch or support Brookins or any of the other highlight plays, visit facebook.com/BestofCollegeBasketball. Fans can also share their vote with Facebook friends. Week three voting opened today and ends Monday, Feb. 4, at 11:59 A.M. ET.
