Ultiworld’s 2021 Block Of The Year Final


One of our most popular series each year, it’s time to look back at last year and let our readers decide some of the top plays of the year.

First up this year is our Block of the Year bracket. We watched many hours of game footage and highlight reels to hunt down the best defensive plays we could find; believe us, there were more than enough options to fill up this bracket, so even some worthy nominees were left on the cutting room floor. Now we’re inviting you, the Ultiworld readers, to vote for your favorite of the finalists selected.

On to the bracket and the candidates. The final round of voting starts now and closes on Tuesday, March 15 at 4PM Eastern.


Culton vs. Searles-Bohs

Dawn Culton – North Carolina Pleaides (USAU College)

Dawn Culton

From an in-state battle between teammates to an in-school battle between current college stars. The Block of the Year goes through Chapel Hill. Dawn Culton’s gargantuan sideline block as one of an impressive collection of top tier blocks the 2021 Defensive Player of the Year put in tape at Nationals. Now she’ll try to finish this block like she did so many opposing offensive possessions.

Liam Searles-Bohs – North Carolina Darkside (USAU College)

Liam Searles-Bohs

LSB absolutely dominated in the previous round, with an impressive 80% of the vote in his matchup against Valeria Cardenas. The power of a callahan is undeniable, especially as ostentatious as this one was. Searles-Bohs is known for his offensive game, though he’s been making waves on the UNC D-line. But he’s up against the reigning queen of defense.
