Cascades hosting three-point contest

UFV inviting local high school players to hit the court

The UFV athletic department is inviting local high school basketball players to compete for the title of Abbotsford’s Best Three-PointShooter.

In conjunction with Panago and the Abbotsford Police City Basketball Tournament, the Cascades will be holding three-point shooting contests at halftime of their Canada West basketball home openers on Nov. 6 vs. the UBC-O Heat.

The contest is open to male and female high school basketball players from Abbotsford, and the format will be similar to the NBA three-point shootout, in which players have one minute to shoot a total of 25 basketballs from five spots around the arc.

The male and female contest winners will receive a package of prizes from Cascades sponsors.

The event is free to enter, and athletes must pre-register by emailing UFV events coordinator Alicia Hurley (alicia.hurley@ufv.ca) by noonon Nov. 5.

The three-point shootout is part of Cascades Tip-off Weekend presented by Panago, featuring games against UBC Okanagan on Friday,Nov. 6 (women 6 p.m., men 8 p.m.) and Saturday, Nov. 7 (women 5 p.m., men 7 p.m.) at UFV’s Envision Athletic Centre.

High school, middle school and elementary basketball players wearing their team jerseys will receive free admission to both weekendgames, and there will be a School Spirit Award up for grabs on Friday for the group that shows the most enthusiasm during the three-pointshooting contests and Cascades games.
