The WNBA All-Star Weekend is just around the corner and the league just announced the participants in the Mountain Dew Three-Point Contest with the three-time champion from the Chicago Sky Allie Quigley coming back to defend the title at McCormick Place in Chicago.
“I’m so excited to be a part of the All-Star weekend in my hometown,” said Quigley. “After winning the event last year I really thought it would be my final time taking part. But the opportunity to compete one more time and to do so in Chicago was too good to pass up. I can’t wait to shoot in front of our home fans; it’s always a great time.”
Quigley will compete against Dallas Wings Arike Ogunbowale, Las Vegas Aces Kelsey Plum, Atlanta Dream rookie Rhyne Howard, Seattle Storm Jewell Loyd, and Washington Mystics Ariel Atkins.
