Maryland women’s basketball senior Shatori Walker-Kimbrough will compete in the women’s three-point contest during the State Farm College Slam Dunk & Three-Point Championships on Thursday in Phoenix.
The event includes the college dunk contest and men’s three-point contest, among other competitions. It will be televised at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN.
It’s tough to pick a favorite for this, but Walker-Kimbrough has the best three-point percentage of the eight players competing. She made 72 of 160 shots from beyond the arc this season, good for the eighth-best success rate in the country at 45 percent.
3-Point Contest Participants
|Sydney Wiese||Oregon St.||42.6|
|Tori Jankoska||Michigan St.||38.4|
|Kindred Wesemann||Kansas St.||35.2|
Walker-Kimbrough is a 46 percent career three-point shooter, the best mark in Maryland history. She led the nation and set a Big Ten record last season when she shot 54.5 percent from deep.
The senior averaged 18.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.9 steals this season, earning a spot on the AP All-American third team. Maryland went 32-3 and reached the Sweet 16 before falling to Oregon. She and fellow All-American Brionna Jones are done in College Park, but both are projected first-round WNBA draft picks. They will find out their pro destinations on April 14.
