Bulldog freshman guard Joel Haywood (Lakewood, Colo.) has been nominated for the 9 News “Top 9 Moments of the Year” for his buzzer-beater in last year’s Colorado state basketball tournament.
Haywood hit a tough jumper from the corner to lift the Denver Lutheran Lights over Peyton High School. Haywood’s game-winner pushed Denver Lutheran to the State Final Four, and Denver Lutheran went on to win the state title.
