The Journey: Dreams Come True

The piece from which this clip was taken was very interesting to edit.  In the full piece, we followed both Purdue’s JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore as they waited to hear their names called in the NBA draft.  The emotion you see in this clip is the result of a dream coming true, but was only part of the story.  Later that same night, Johnson found out Moore would also be drafted to the NBA … and would become a Boston Celtic.

The Journey: A Classic Moment

In March of 2008, The Journey captured one of the most dramatic moments in Big Ten Tournament history – when Minnesota’s Blake Hoffarber, then a freshman guard, hit a buzzer-beater to defeat Indiana in one of the craziest finishes in years. The cameraman, Cody Shimek, told us after he shot this shot that it was one of the greatest pieces of footage he has ever captured — from following the pass, through the shot and his immediate reaction to get as close to the pile-up as possible. An amazing moment none of us involved with the show will ever forget. Watch the video clip once again inside on this post.
