Judges

A panel of five judges was gathered to provide scoring for the event. The judges were instructed to rate the dunk on an overall scale from 1 to 10. (It should be noted that in the spirit of fairness, the identities of the dunkers were masked when the judges were given the dunks out-of-character. Names have been added back in after the fact, here in the descriptions below.)

Quarterfinal Round

For the first round dunkers went in ascending order based on their ranking from the fan vote. Following rounds will be ascending order based on their overall score from the previous round.

Kevin Malka

Kevin comes out to the beginning beats of Ordinary Day by Great Big Sealion. He gets himself set up a big before the half court line as the song continues to play, waving to the people in the audience. To the side of the court, Aditya Anggun sets up in the shadows created by the spotlight.

As the song hits the chorus, Kevin takes off running towards the hoop. A moment before he reaches the hoop, Aditya does a very quick pass, giving Kevin only a moment to catch the ball, take the final two steps, and jump, slamming the ball hard...straight into the rim high and out of the basket, Malka surprised he came up short as he barely lands on his feet.

"Admittedly, it was going to be tough to follow the last few dunks. But to have the ball bounce out, that's just rotten luck." -- Cedric O'Toole
"It seems like the pass took him by surprise and that made him miss the dunk entirely. Close but no cigar, but the song's good." -- Tashira Rucson
"It's always a shame to see a dunk get botched, and this was no exception... I suppose this is all I can give for the road." -- Scott Masterson
"An unfortunate miss. I'm not sure why they needed to set themselves up a 'big', but it didn't seem to make much of a difference in the end. Not a whole lot to discuss aside from the execution - it ain't my type of music, yo." -- Matt Lewis
"Nothing to say but oof... Like the idea, but the execution was well... yeah." -- Marcus Baylor

Margo Warrior

The stadium goes dark. A group of male white-tailed jackrabbits, all brothers of Margo Warrior, all move a large drum to the court on one side. The brothers, eight in total, begin drumming and singing (https://youtu.be/aKRxjKw9o4w). A spotlight fades in to show them drumming. A separate spotlight fades in to show Margo. She picks up a stick and pulls up a seat beside them. She sings alongside them, not a normal part of her tribe's tradition.

After a moment or so, she sets down the stick and gets up. The other half of the court lights up, and four diagonal trampolines have been set up. A basketball sits at center court. She picks up the ball. She gets a running start. Before she jumps on the first trampoline, she lets the ball loose to fly through the air between the two rows of trampolines, two on each side of the path to the basket.

She jumps to the first trampoline and jumps off of it. In between each jump, she touches the basketball lightly, keeping it afloat with a two-handed push, almost like a volleyball move to set up a spike. She does this between each of the trampolines, although they miscalculate the leap from the first and the second trampolines, and tMargo has to recover slightly by giving the ball an extra bounce as they adjust their timing. By the fourth trampoline, she grabs the ball, turning so that they are facing away from the basket, dunks the ball behind their head with one hand, hanging from the rim as the short song from her brothers' finish.

"I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the use of trampolines here, considering the last dunker got great air without them. But you used them well here. Loved the dramatic presentation also. Well done!" -- Cedric O'Toole
""
"I get the idea of the dunk, but the execution just felt... clumsy here." -- Scott Masterson
"Jeez... a lot of hubbub, but it was worth the wait!! Shaken to my core. Imagine had they missed that shot... although for a perfect score I'd have like to see a bit more skill on the part of the player rather than the added antics." -- Matt Lewis
"While there was a lot of great focus on keeping the ball afloat. I'm never a fan of using props with a jumping advantage like trampolines and the band takes focus off the actual dunk. Still a good dunk." -- Marcus Baylor

Trevor Cruz

A high-jump bar is brought out onto the court, set up about five feet in front of the hoop. The bar is set to a height of 7'9", and a landing mat is wheeled out beneath the basket. Trevor comes out to stand at half-court, wearing a Pagan ceremonial robe with his face hidden. He takes off the robe to reveal his identity, wearing his team uniform.

"I was born to a basketball player and a track athlete," he proclaims. "Today, I combine the sports of my parents, to create a high-flying experience for all of you!"

Trevor takes a basketball and walks over to the top of the three-point line, then over to the sideline at a perpendicular angle. He begins dribbling and running up toward the high-jump bar. As he reaches it, he takes the ball into his wings, leaps, and arches himself over the bar, arms extended behind himself to slam the ball into the hoop as he tucks in his legs to keep from knocking over the bar. His heel catches the bar and it rattles, though it does not fall off its perch. He then lets go of the rim, falling to the mat in a kneeling position, before rolling off the mat and standing tall for the crowd.

"My God... even with your ankle catching the bar, you got some serious air on that dunk! I haven't seen anyone jump that high since the Healer himself! You've set a high bar indeed!" -- Cedric O'Toole
""
"Okay, that was almost too close for comfort, but he definitely made it work! We finally got a good dunk on the board, everyone!" -- Scott Masterson
"Aw, man! (jaw agape) ... I can't even imagine the athleticism! Reminds me of my younger days, a pup in track and field... I hated those days. But, uh, yeah - as my coach would say: Don't touch the bar, you fool! So, one point off. Still pretty amazing, though!" -- Matt Lewis
"Great show of athleticism on a very difficult dunk to pull off! Going to be tough to top that here." -- Marcus Baylor

Andrew McDonald-Rainbow

Andrew is excited to be at the FBA Slam Dunk Contest and he is ready to show the world what he is made off. But before he can pull off the dunks that he wants to pull off, He needs to do an impressive dunk to get himself on the board. He runs up. Bounces the ball, jumps and Goes 360 and dunks with authority! Hopefully, He has assured his appearance in the Second Round.

"Losing your grip on the ball could have been disastrous here. Credit to you for a nice recovery." -- Cedric O'Toole
""
"I suppose this was a plain dunk, but it was a good dunk nonetheless! There's still four other dunks left to go, though, so we'll see what happens." -- Scott Masterson
"Simple is never a bad thing - and the dribbling itself wasn't clean - but they made it in at the end. Still... I can't help but want something more than a 360-degree turn, especially after the last few dunks." -- Matt Lewis
"Simple, to the point. Very impactful dunk!" -- Marcus Baylor

Lisa DuPont

Lisa walks onto the court wearing her Las Vegas jersey and nothing covering the scar on her neck leaving it exposed for all to see. She is holding a basketball and a permanent marker. With a focused face she aimlessly walks around and bounces the ball with her right hand a couple of times. She then uncaps the marker held in her left hand with her teeth and begins writing on the ball. She caps the pen and gives it to someone to take it off the court and starts to shake the ball to dry the ink. Once dry she lowers her head, closes her eyes, and holds the ball over her head revealing the words "SELF HATE" in huge letters to the audience and cameras. Once everyone has seen the words, she opens her eyes, and takes her place at the three-point line. She holds the ball out to her right/front and looks down at the words. She quickly and firmly bounces the ball once and stops. Twice and stops. Three times and stops. Each bounce grows with emotional intensity. She looks up at the net and back at the ball. Holding the ball with both hands she starts to run from the three-point line towards the hoop. Just as she reaches halfway into the free-throw line she jumps up and yells with the ball in her left hand, switches it from between her legs (right leg out front) to her right hand, and windmills the right hand from back and over into the hoop shouting again as she dunks the ball. Once she lands, she walks around and points out into the audience in a few different directions and then flexes her arms to show strength.

"Good Lord... what a display of athleticism and strength! And an emotionally powerful presentation to go with it! We have seen grace in the air, and now we have seen true power!" -- Cedric O'Toole
""
"The flexing at the end took a point off my final score, but this dunk was still very well done!" -- Scott Masterson
"Yeah, I'm sold. The most emotionally-laden dunk of the evening thus far. Certainly not a puritan performance, but the needed strength and agility I'd expect from a professional were shown off, and I'm ... I'm sold. Fantastic!" -- Matt Lewis
"Now THAT is a dunk. If there's a definition of a dunk that you don't need some flash prop for, this would be it for this year! " -- Marcus Baylor

Yves Carbonneau

Yves Carbonneau now comes on the court for his dunk. As he stands around half court, he signals the crowd to wait a moment as he pulls something from behind his back of his trunks. Its...A Super Mario Hat?! He then puts it on, followed with a fake bushy mustache! The crowd erupts in laughter (especially the kids in the audience) as suddenly the classic Super Mario Brothers theme started playing in the arena. Yves would dribble a little bit as each dribble would sound like a coin collected until he gets a 1-up. But then all suddenly, coming out from the crowd and standing in front of the basket, with the tune of bowser castle playing not throughout the arena, its Yves Carbonneau fellow teammate Kevin Malka..no Wait, Kevin “Bowser” Malka as he wearing a Bowser wig, with the Orange hair, the horns, everything!

Both faced each other, calling one another to step up. Checking the ball to each other (with fireballs sound effects) When Super Mario Yves gets the ball he starts charging in onto Kevin. Getting caught by surprise, “Bowser” quickly leaned down and curled into a ball. As Yves would take flight, cleared over Malka, passed the ball under his left leg and throw it down with Authority with a single paw under the leg Slam dunk! Playing along, Malka “Bowser” lays defeated on the floor, as the castle cleared theme plays and Yves throw the classic “Here we goooo!” with the peace sign to the camera to the applause of the crowd. Helping his friend Malka up, he then goes to the crowd, giving the Mario hat and the mustache to a kid fan at courtside, waiting for the results.

"This was a delightful dunk. The music, sound effects and costumes were nice touches, as was getting your teammate involved. Mamma Mia, I hope we see you again in the next round!" -- Cedric O'Toole
"Okay that was entertaining, and that's the basic point of slam dunk contests... it's to entertain and this one definitely took the bill! Of course it helps that I played the Mario games a lot when I had my NES as a kid..." --Tashira Rucson
"...Guys, I think we have the winner for the first round. My only question is, if this was what he prepared in the first round, then what does he have in store for the next two ones?" -- Scott Masterson
""Yes. YES... this is why I came here, man! Did you SEE that under-the-leg part?? Actually a very brilliant tribute to the recent announcement of Reggie Fleece-Aime's departure. But, aside from that, I was humored, blown away... just a fantastic start for Yves. Wonderful." -- Matt Lewis
"Hahaha, now this was a fun dunk to see. Maybe the nostalgia of playing that game as the kid talking, but how can anyone be against this one? While we've seen the under the leg dunk quite a number of times this round, it gave us a reminder that these contests are just for fun!" -- Marcus Baylor

Sterling Bengtzing

Sterling and his fellow teammate of the Voodoo death duo, Derek Kim, prepare to take the shot, seemingly as the sharpshooting point guard will pass to the polecat in some point of the dunk for him to sink it in. But then, Derek asks for one of the judges' phones, opening the camera and taking a video with the front camera, aimed to his face and the hoop, Sterling focused at the rim. The kkachi takes the whole scene in the frame, staring at the camera and screen as he aligns his passing arm. Once he finds the proper spot, he passes the ball towards Sterling's direction, who snatches it and sinks it in a thunderous windmill.

"Honestly, I would have been more impressed if you pulled this dunk off without your teammate capturing it all on a smart phone camera. It may get a lot of retweets tonight, but I have a feeling 10 years from now it's going to seem cheesy as hell. As my son would say, don't @ me." -- Cedric O'Toole
"While it is technically just a windmill dunk, it's the unique and innovative perspective from the phone camera that really drove the score up for me. It's like a dunk with a selfie!" --Tashira Rucson
"Maybe I'm biased because he specifically asked to use my phone, but I loved it! It's certainly gonna be a one-of-a-kind angle for me to watch at home..." -- Scott Masterson
"I don't know if we're worthy of that awesome video on our phones, haha... and that had to have taken quite a bit of practice. Well done!" -- Matt Lewis
"Very creative dunk there! I'm sure those pics would definitely be a wallpaper for many! Excellent execution of the windmill dunk!" -- Marcus Baylor


Scoonie Barrett

Scoonie starts his dunk from outside the three-point line. He runs inside the key, making an arch from the left side of the court to under the basket, then leaps right in front of the rim giving his back to the hoop - his arms fully outstretched and holding the ball down. With a loud scream, he opens his legs in a full split as he throws his arms up and behind his head, sinking the ball with a powerful slam... ...right into the front of the rim. He quickly corrects his mistake and manages to bobble the ball in before landing on his feet.

"My ears are still ringing from that scream. And I can't unsee that split either. It was an ambitious dunk, I'll give you that. Maybe too ambitious, seeing as you flubbed the finish." -- Cedric O'Toole

"Good recovery at the end, but I think he needed a bit extra to push this to the next level even without the mistake." -- Scott Masterson
"The athletics were impressive, and I'm not sure my ears will ever hear quite right again. but the ball almost didn't make it in at the end there. They just need to get the quality of the dunk under control." -- Matt Lewis
"While there was a bit of a miscue, at least the dunker did make it in." -- Marcus Baylor

Semifinal Round

Due to a tie for second, a coin-flip was used to determine who would go second in the Semifinal round.

Sterling Bengtzing

Sterling whistles loudly and calls for two portable hoops that are being rolled in, the boards much smaller than normal, styled with chains as if they were streetball ones you'd find at the park, placed apart of each other about the wingspan of the polecat's arms extended, a little less. Andrius Vilkasaitis sits in the middle of them, ball on paw. Sterling starts bouncing one of his own, sprinting towards the middle of the hoops. As he jumped, Andrius feeds him the second ball to his free paw as he extends his arms in a T figure, sinking both balls in each, holding and hanging from the hoops for a while, even making a bicycle motion with his legs after getting down.

"I really enjoyed this dunk. Made use of your entire wingspan, got your teammate involved, and an impressive display of power, throwing down on two hoops at once. Nicely done!" -- Cedric O'Toole
"While the style of dunk(s) itself was simplistic enough, I like the uniqueness aspect of this one, and how difficult it would be to have the eye-paw coordination to accomplish two dunks at the same time! -- Tashira Rucson"
"Gotta love that streetball setup along with that perfect execution! This wasn't quite a 10 for me, but I have a hunch we'll be seeing him in the finals for another chance..." -- Scott Masterson
"I'd give this a 10, but they didn't use the main hoop! Not to mention they didn't even jump all that high. Call me old-school, but somehow I feel that doesn't quite fit the rules of the contest. Solid effort, but wheel out a 2nd *full*-sized hoop and then we'll be talking!" -- Matt Lewis
"Great athleticism, and focus. The flashiness of the streetball swagger really showed with this one and the core strength at the end was phenomenal! However, since we did see something a bit similar last year, can't give it a perfect." -- Marcus Baylor

Trevor Cruz

Trevor and a tall, vulpine figure come out onto the court. The tall figure is wearing a Guy Fox mask, easily a foot taller than the bat, perhaps even more than that. The mystery guest stands a step inside the free-throw line, centered to the hoop. Trevor waves to the mystery guest, who gives Trevor a nod and a thumbs-up. The bat then walks to half-court, looking to the crowd once more.

"We explored the high jump last time," Trevor proclaims, waving to the crowd. "Now, I'm going to take things to the second dimension, adding length to height. My special, very tall guest will help me demonstrate that I'm not just one-dimensional."

Trevor then goes over to the opposite baseline from the fox. He begins running toward the hoop, dribbling the whole time. Working his way into a full sprint, but seemed troubled by his speed as he approach the three-point line, his intended take-off point, and decide to take an extra stride to gain more speed. Trevor leaps into the air just as he steps onto the free-throw circle line and begins spinning. Spreading his legs in an attempt to clear the "mysterious fox's" head while trying to perform a 540 spin, but is unable to gain enough height, instead Trevor crashes into the fox obliques first as he was mid-spin. Thankfully the fox is unaffected and manages to help catch Trevor before he could fall awkwardly. While neither appears to be injured by the attempt, the ball failed to make it to the basket.

"This may have been a case of trying to do too much. Dunking over a much taller player would have been difficult enough, without trying to incorporate a spin. Clearly, the whole sequence had to go just right to pull this dunk off, and it simply did not." -- Cedric O'Toole
"You know the phrase 'don't bite off more than you can chew'? Well in this case, don't choose a height greater than you can jump over. Nice try but no cigar." -- Tashira Rucson
"Oh, no! It would have been an amazing dunk had he managed to pull that off, but... yeah. All I can say is I'm glad neither of the two players got injured..." -- Scott Masterson
"Too much focus on the staging, and not enough focus on the shot itself, obviously. An unfortunate miss from a very talented fur... I hope they're okay? " -- Matt Lewis
"Ouch... not something you'd like to see, hopefully both of them are alright." -- Marcus Baylor

Lisa DuPont

Lisa comes on to the court and stomps twice then claps (Similar to the rhythm of “we will rock you”). She does this several times obviously trying to get the crowd to join along. Once the crowd has caught on, she starts to bob and dance around a bit as she goes to pick up a ball. Lisa then bends over and bounces the ball to each of the audience’s stomps. She continues to dance around and freestyle for a little bit between the double dribbles. Then she begins to dribble the ball rapidly, barely letting the ball leave the ground.

She waves her free hand in the air encouraging the crowd to stomp along to the dribbling. With the stadium sounding like a stampede rushing through, she runs from the three-point line with both hands on the ball towards the net, leaps up just before reaching it, does a 360 counterclockwise spin, and dunks the ball with both hands while spreading her legs to a split. The follow-through is messy, and the ball slips out of her paws and starts to roll around the hoop. Lisa recovers well enough to tap it in before letting go of the rim and dropping back to the ground.

"Major props for the build-up, especially with how you got the crowd so pumped up. But the follow-through was disappointing. If it had been cleaner, I have no doubt the roof would have blown off the arena, would have been something truly special." -- Cedric O'Toole
"I really like the fan participation in this, and the 360-spin with split legs was great! However, I must lower the score just a bit then I normally would because it didn't go in perfectly. At least it didn't go out!" -- Tashira Rucson
"Slight mistake on the execution there, but a good attempt nonetheless! We'll have to see how the final dunk turns out, though..." -- Scott Masterson
"On par with the last dunk we saw. But don't you dare think I didn't see that ball nearly roll out!" -- Matt Lewis
"While it was cute to get the crowd into it, the dunk didn't finish with that flare. It went through so that counts!" -- Marcus Baylor

Yves Carbonneau

Now here comes Yves Carbonneau for his second dunk. Right before he started preparing, he signals someone from the crowd of fellow players at courtside to come join in; it’s his girlfriend, Albany Alphas’s Narkissa Kassius! Hugging her and kissing her, they approached the hop as they are discussing strategy.

Yves then walks halfway to the baseline at the left of the basket, as Narkissa settles at the free throw line with the ball. As she bounced the ball a couple of times, she sets up for a free throw. Yves and Narkissa stared at each other as they seem to nod, like they are counting down before Yves prepares for the dunk. Once Narkissa is ready, she winds up and goes for the free throw. Yves makes a run for it across the baseline and once the ball passed through the hoop, he grabs the ball with both hands and has just enough time to adjust with a one-handed windmill jam! Coming down, Yves roars to the crowd and raises his arms up to pump the crowd even more, as he would grab onto a leaping lemur, as Narkissa came in to kiss him on a successful dunk attempt.

"And this fox is showing that his first round effort was no fluke indeed! I'll be saving my 10s for the final round, but I am seriously anticipating what kind of show he has in store for us there..." -- Scott Masterson
"Awesome stuff. Two thumbs up! The coordination between the two players... they didn't need a second try, and that's the key here. And the crowd loves it, can 'ya hear that crowd? I'd be crucified if I didn't score it right..." -- Matt Lewis
"Now that is what I call a creative dunk with no props! Great quickness and athleticism and authority!" -- Marcus Baylor

Final Round

The order of the last round was determined by the previous round score, ascending order which means Sterling Bengtzing will go first.

Sterling Bengtzing

Sterling walks in, a voodoo doll vaguely resembling its rival on hand, as Black Sabbath plays. As the lead singer was known to do once, the polecat bites the head off the doll, tossing it to the crowd, for a little souvenir.

The polecat walked towards his teammates, Andrius and Derek, both clad in their Voodoo ensembles, ball in hand, passing it to the wolf. "You know what to do." Sterling nodded as the three took position, with Andrius on the opposite way of Derek and Sterling.

Andrius threw the ball hard against the board, at the same time the mustelid began to sprint to the direction of the post and Derek. The avian caught the ball that the wolf threw, and extended his arm. The polecat jumped high enough to swipe the ball from under him, passing it under his legs and extending his arm to sink the ball, but as he approaches the hoop it's clear he misjudged his speed of the run-up as he looks short, still, Sterling is able to reach far enough to dunk the ball but it's not as loud of a dunk as he intended but he still managed to hang from the hoop nonetheless for some seconds for a show of strength.

Yves Carbonneau

On this third and final dunk, Narkissa Kassius was asked to come help once more. Along with an unknown fan going near the basket, the ball held on top of his head. Suddenly, The lemur seems to pull out something from a bag…two Luchadores masks??!? Narkissa would then puts her on as the crowd roars in excitement, as Yves puts the one he had to. All blue and with a white fleur de lys on it! “Here comes Quebec Man!” the announcer would say, as Yves poses for a moment along with Narkissa, his trusted sidekick!

Fans and players have a blast laughing on the sidelines as Yves then points to the man holding the ball, as Narkissa would nod. Taking a stance, Narkissa first ran after the guy as Yves was about to soon follow. Narkissa would then process to jump on the guy holding the ball shoulders, grabbing the ball in the process. As Yves as soon got his cue, he ran for the basket, then Narkissa would toss the ball so it hits the backboard and bounce once on the rim. She then takes the guy down with a Frankensteiner head scissors takedown! While doing so, Yves, having run with enough speed would jump as high as e would near the basket, extending himself as he grabbed the ball. But unfortunately, the pass from Narkissa was not where intended as it took an unexpected angle from the bounce off the rim and ended far to the left and lower. Yves manages to recover and grab the ball in time to slam it down with one paw, apparently attempting to dip his arm fully into the basket up to the elbow but the miscue on the pass forces him to only hold on to the rim for a few seconds with his paw. Coming back down to the applause of the crowd, he would then roar as he would slowly rip his jersey, Hulk Hogan style and poses along with Narkissa!

2019 FBA 3-Point Shootout

The selected 16 3-point shooters, as voted by the fans, will face off through three rounds to see who's the best 3-point shooter in the league! Each round will consist of each player having one minute to shoot 25 balls, distributed in groups of 5 on racks surrounding the perimeter, with the last ball of each rack being worth 2-points instead of the usual 1-point. (These balls are referred to as the 'Moneyball'). The Top 8 scorers from the first round will move onto the Second Round, and from there the Top 4 will move onto the Finals. Whoever comes out on top in the Finals takes home the trophy! Should there be a tie at any point that would determine who moves onto the next round, a shootout will occur until the tie is broken between all relevant parties.

The Event took place canonically on Saturday, February 23 at 9 PM EST.

Tie-breaker seeding is determined by the speed at which the shooter reached the final score, in the case of the four-way tie for 5th Matthew Silvius reached that score the fastest in 57.8 seconds while Kresta Renstill reached it the slowest in 59.8 seconds.

Overview

And with that the first round of the 3pt contest comes to a close! The thinnest of margins separates players from the Second Round as we see rookies, veterans, and a former 3pt champion fall in the first round! A four-way tie between for the 5th seed was a little unexpected, but with the level of talent here this week, it should not have taken me by surprise.

Leading the way into the Second Round will be Derek Kim, who came out on fire here tonight, missing only five buckets from beyond the arc! But he will have to keep that amazing consistency up if he hopes to stand a chance, as not far behind this round was two veterans of the competition Lance Wildfyre and Jonathan Lawyer. These two players are repeat finalists for this competition and showed how much that experience pays off, as both kept cool and calm despite the pressure, both posting 20+ score rounds.

The surprise of the round has to go to a newcomer of the competition, Yesina Selas, who despite not completing her last rack, leaving two balls un-shot, she still managed to put up 20 points! Despite the pressure of shooting second to last and knowing the high mark she had to meet she managed to even surpass the 19 points needed to force a tie and leaped up into the 4th place for the round!

The remaining competitors moving on include a former champion Kresta Renstill, who barely scraped into the next round with only .2 seconds left on her final shot, a veteran 3pt contestant, Matthew Silvius, who is still looking to make his first 3pt Finals appearance, Aurora Goldshine, who is looking to make a deep run in the 3pt Contest for the first time since her defeat in the Finals back all the way in 2015 to Jake Velox, and lastly Kaspar Kuusik, who bounced back from last year's disastrous showing where he only put up 8 points.

These eight players will move onto the 2nd Round!

Semi-Finals

The order in this round will be determined by previous rounds performance, starting with the top seed and progressing down the ranking.

Coming into Round 2 the kkachi is flying high after dominating the first round! That gives him a chance to set the pace here in Round 2 as he will go first.

Unfortunately, the bird struggles to find consistency early on! Miss, make, miss, make; back and forth it goes through the first four racks before he finally finds his shooting stroke and puts up an impressive seven straight to finish the round with a score of 18. While a respectable score, given the talent coming up the question on everyone's mind is if it will be enough.

The rabbit from Bangor takes the court second, in terms of All-Star Week Lance is a favorite and is still looking to notch up a win here in the 3pt-Contest after finally managing to win the Dunk Contest two years ago.

Starting the round the rabbit is absolutely on fire! Perfect through the first rack and quickly moves onto the second where he continues his tear until he finally misses on the 10th shot, unfortunately that is also the money ball of the rack. But nonetheless that early start is more then enough momentum to help carry him through a middling third and fourth rack breaking a little better than even there before finishing off strong in the final rack with only .5 seconds to spare after making the final money ball.

Very quickly Lance has taken center stage here and put the upcoming competitors on notice, the new score to beat is 22!

Another veteran of the 3pt contest is up next, the meerkat from Dakota has found himself in the finals the past two years, both times unable to snatch away a victory here as he now walks onto the court, forced to followup after such a great performance from Lance Wildfyre.

And perhaps the pressure is being felt as he misses five of his first ten shots here on the first two racks! But he looks to have recovered as he moves through this third rack with a perfect showing...and he doesn't look like he's ready to stop anytime soon as he continues his streak into the fourth rack! Oh, just barely misses the fourth of the rack ending his impressive streak of nine but he continues on an absolute roll hitting the final six shots. An unreal showing on the back half where Lawyer went 15 for 16 there...setting a new top score for the round at 23!

The lemur from Plymouth is up next. Many were surprised by her First Round showing as she blew past most of the favored competitors to nab the 4th highest score.

And whatever pressure she must be under is clearly not enough to affect her as she's shooting well here early, aside from the first ball just rolling out she finishes the first rack with four measured shots. Though the wheels on start to fall off as she moves through the next three racks with crucial misses on each of the racks money balls putting her well behind the pace of the rest of the competitors. And it looks like she knows it too as she's taking her time here on the last rack...one, two, three good so far but oh no! The buzzer sounds with two racks still left on the rack and she does not look happy with her performance.

With a final score of 15 Yesina Selas finds herself on the cusp of elimination with four shooters to go.

Matthew Silvius is up next, the Finals MVP still looking for his first finals appearance in this, his fourth attempt in this competition.

He struggles to gain a rhythm through the first rack and it shows as he misses the first two in the second...but manages to put together a small streak of four into the third rack before the misses start up again. But the key money ball on the third rack gets a lucky bounce off the rim and helps him run up a rapid streak of five shots before finally missing on the fourth money ball. The last rack is a messy affair as he seems to be rushing through, perhaps concerned about making the same mistake as Yesina did but it's costing him as he misses three of the four first balls in the final rack. But the final money ball is good with 2.4 seconds on the clock though the weasel surely could have paced himself better, a score of 19 will knock out Yesina, but with three shooters left Silvius will have to watch to see if he moves on.

Aurora follows next, looking to slink back into the finals for the first time in many seasons here tonight.

Luck does not appear to be on her side early here though as she watches four of her first six shots bounce off the rim. It does not look like she will be able to shake off that tough start as she is struggling here through each rack, only managing to put up three at most per rack as she heads into the final rack...but this is where she makes her stand, hitting four of the last five shots to finish out the round with a score of 18, which currently ties her with Derek Kim for fourth place. With two shooters left to go both of these players now have to start mentally preparing themselves for the potential for a shootout to determine who moves on should the next two shooters fail to eliminate them.

The sophomore lynx from Biloxi is up next. Kaspar Kuusik bombed out of last years 3pt Contest finishing in last place, but has turned it around here tonight as he now looks to make it to the Finals!

He starts off extremely well with an impressively fast first rack in under 9 seconds that nets him a cool five points quickly and the momentum carries over to the second rack as he racks up a five-shot streak that is unfortunately brought to an end on the second money ball. The following miss seems to rattle the young lynx as he is taking longer to get off his shots, not sure whether it's fatigue or being overly cautious but time is ticking as he moves to the final rack...and there's the buzzer. Just like Yesina Kaspar will leave two balls un-shot on the final rack.

His final score of 18 also adds him to the list of competitors faced with the potential of a tiebreaker round...as all eyes shift towards the last competitor who can potentially eliminate all three of them.

The reigning 3pt Champion Kresta Renstill will go last here tonight. Three players already through to the final round, while three more watch on. Their hopes of moving on depending on how the fox performs here.

And she's off to a blistering pace! The first rack goes smoothly as she moves onto the second where she doesn't even break a sweat as she hits all five in a row and continues her growing streak all the way to nine before finally missing in the third rack but she recovers quickly and hits the final two giving her a score of 16 with only ten balls to go. But as quickly as the fell for her in the third rack the basketball gods seemed to turn on her in the fourth. Each one bouncing off the rim leaving her with only five balls to go and still needed two points to force a tie. Moving onto the final rack she hits the first! But any excitement is quickly squashed as she misses the next three...it all comes down to the final ball. She makes it and she's through to the finals, eliminating the three players on the sideline. She grabs the ball and goes through her motion, the buzzer and her release are so close together it's tough to tell whether she got it off in time...but it's good! But we are still waiting on the refs to confirm she got it off in time...and no, they are waving it off saying the ball didn't leave her pays until .1 seconds after the buzzer sounded. So close but the thinnest of margins of time will eliminate Kresta Renstill with a score of 17.

Kresta Renstill Eliminated

Tiebreaker Round 2

Tiebreaker order will go based on the speed at which the competitor managed to reach the tying score last round, with the fastest going first and the slowest going second. Tiebreaker will repeat again if there is no winner after one round until there is only one winner.

Kaspar will start us off here in the Tiebreaker round as he reached the score of 18 fastest of any of the three competitors. Will have to see if he ups his pace as last round he left baskets un-shot on the final rack.

He isn't off to a good start as he misses his first shot but quickly recovers and finishes up the first rack going three for five, the same percentage is repeated in the second rack but by missing the second money ball the lynx is putting himself in a tough spot if he's looking to set a high mark...but oh my god does he turn it on at the halfway point...two...four...nine in a row! As he misses a second money ball to end that long streak and he's starting to look tired as he misses the next two to follow as well before putting up one last shot before the buzzer. With a score of 18 he finds himself with the same score as last round...and the same questions to be asked if he did enough as he walks off, two balls still left on the final rack due to his pace.

Goldshine is walking onto the court next, she needs to exceed her own score last round if she wants to eliminate Kuusik and put the pressure on Kim.

Consistency is once again an issue as she struggles through the first two racks, missing both money balls before a back and forth of making and misses occurs in the third rack. Though it at least culminates in her first money ball as she moves into the back half of the balls. Finally she finds her rhythm! On the brink of elimination she hits eight in a row before fatigue finally sets in and she struggles to even make the final three shots hit the rim. But with a score of 18 she might be in trouble, should Derek fail to score higher her and Kaspar will be heading into another tiebreaker shootout and she is starting to look very winded from all these shots.

After patiently waiting on the sidelines it is now Kim's turn. He needs to at least match his score of 18 from last round to continue to a second tiebreaker but he has the chance here to eliminate both competitors should he manage to one-up them.

His first shot is not good but it does not seem to bother the kkachi as he hits his next four with ease. Moving onto the second rack and...oh! He slipped a little trying to move to the second rack. He looks fine but it clearly slowed him down some as he tries to rush the first two shots to make up the last time he misses them both. He does recover and makes the next two but the money ball just won't fall for him this time. A clean transition to the third rack seems to help him reset as his form is back, hitting four of the five from the top of the arc. The fouth rack goes smoothly with the money ball going in bringing his total up to 16 with only five balls to go. The first is good, the second is as well so we'll at least see a tiebrea-- and the third is also good! With that we have our final competitor! Derek finishes out the rest of his rack, not sure if he lost track of his score or just wanted to be sure but he managed to hit one more to bring his final score up to 20 points! With that we can move onto the Finals.

Lawyer will start us off in this final round and the meerkat is looking like he means business with his first rack raining in five straight! That quick pace is threatened when he misses the next three shots but the meerkat takes a moment to reset himself as he finishes the rack with two makes, including the all-important money ball. Onto the third rack now...and another perfect one! That's two so far and he's continuing that streak into the next! Two...four...and oh just missing the money ball but that put him at a mind-blowing eleven shot streak! And he's looking to finish strong, despite missing the first one he manages to finish the rest of the rack cleaning with only 0.1 seconds left on the clock! And with that, the first shooter is finished...and man has he put up a daunting score of 24! Can any of the competitors hope to match that?

The rabbit is up next, he is not a newcomer to the finals here but will the pressure of Jonathan's score impact his performance? The first rack looks good with only one miss but that miss already puts him behind the pace of the meerkat...but, unlike the meerkat Lance goes perfect from the second rack! But two misses to follow up that streak put him right back on pace with Jonathan. A quick string of four makes as he moves through the fourth rack but he becomes streaky, make, miss, make, miss...make, now he has to be perfect if he hopes to at least tie Lawyer! The first shot from the last rack is good...OH NO, Lance misses the second one and you can tell by the frustrated grunt that he knows he just missed out once more on a 3pt Trophy, nonetheless, he finishes out the rack with two more makes and one miss out of pride. Finishing with a high score of 23, yet it won't be enough to knock off Lawyer from 1st place.

As Lance walks off the court Matthew prepares to walk on, after a quick fist bump with his teammate Jonathan he heads over to the first rack. Much like Lance, he starts off well, missing the middle ball of the first rack but finishing strong with the money ball. The next two racks are a disaster for the weasel though as he's unable to find a strong rhythm, quickly racking up four misses over the two. But each rack he hits the money ball which is the only thing keeping him close to Jonathan's pace as he moves into the fourth rack...and a disastrous miss on the first shot ratches the pressure up as now he has to be perfect on the last nine balls just to force a tiebreaker! The first four are good...but once again the first shot of the rack is his undoing as he misses once again. He finishes the remaining four shots going four for four...and it looks like he didn't keep track of his points as he looked at the scoreboard before it seemed to set in that he was just one point shy of a tiebreaker. Despite going five for five from the money ball, it just was not enough as Matthew ends with a final score of 23.

And our final shooter tonight, baring a tiebreaker, will be Derek Kim. So far Jonathan has managed to squeak by the thinnest of margins, can the kkachi be the one to finally overtake him? Like the past two competitors, he starts off well, making it all the way through the second rack with only two misses which puts him actually ahead of the pace set by the leader! Though that is quickly knocked off as a miss on the third rack puts him back on pace and oh no! A crucial miss on the money ball is going to hurt. Jonathan set up such a blistering pace in the middle thanks to that long streak and it's looking like the competitors here are struggling to match it. But Derek is not done yet! A perfect fourth rack will keep him in it. If he can finish with a perfect run here he'll take the crown, he can only afford one miss if he wants to at least take it to overtime....and the first shot of the last rack bounces out...and the second...just like that the hope dies. He finishes the rack out of pride but missing the final shot will cause him to finish with a score of 21.
