Boys "Top Shooters Challenge" Participants

On Saturday, March 16 the top boys basketball teams in the state will face off in the State Finals. However, there will be another face off, though not as well known.  This competition will crown the "best" boys Free Throw and Three Point Shooters in the state.  This is the "Top Shooters Challenge" put on by BCAM and the MHSAA.

Nominations for the BCAM Top Shooters Awards (received by 3/6) were put in order and the top 20 boys in each category were invited to attend. Some declined their invitations and so others next in line were invited until we had 20 participants in each category.  These will face off at the Breslin Center on Saturday to crown the top shooter in the state.

Here is the list of boys participating this year:

3 PT Winner: Drew Hess  Runner Up: Eli Carlson
FT Co-Champions:  Carson Bornefeld, Clayton Dykhouse
