Blue or green? That is the question for fans in the state of Michigan must ask itself whenever Michigan plays Michigan State. The game featured in this clip in this post came down to the last shot, but more impressive than the game itself was the respect the two star players had for each other after the game. It was yet another great behind the scenes moment caught by our @BTNJourney crew. And have you seen our other clips? They’re all right here. We’ll be adding more in the days and weeks ahead.
A great moment in the season finale of The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2011. After riding the ups and downs of the Big Ten basketball season all year, the Michigan Wolverines played the waiting game on Selection Sunday. The wait was well worth it.
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. That’s just like Johnson!
One of our favorite things about The Journey is that we get a chance to introduce you to more than just the stars of the Big Ten Conference. For anyone that watched our senior night episode of The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2010, this was an unforgettable moment. The story of Mark Titus remains a favorite for all of The Journey crew.
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.
Last week in Chicago, Big Ten basketball coaches and players gathered for their annual meet and greet with the national media. Producers from BTN’s award-winning series The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2012 attended and sat down with the conference’s movers and shakers as a new season of Big Ten hoops approaches.
