Obscure basketball stat first mentioned in email to ESPN's Bill Simmons.

A hand-gate is earned when a player (while on the bench) over-dramatically shields his ecstatic teammates from spilling onto the court during a big moment in the game.
The all-time NCAA hand-gate leader is Cherokee Parks with 12.
