Delavan-Darien High School junior William Brown participated in the the inaugural WIAA Boys 3-Point Challenge at the Kohl Center in Madison on Saturday morning, prior to the boys hoops state championship games.
Sophomore Riley Geiger of Loyal won the event. Brown didn’t make it out of the first round, but did score a respectable 14 points in his attempt.
Brown was one of 10 participants selected for the event based on stats information entered by coaches into the WisSports.net database. The top two three-point shooters (minimum 75 attempts) from each division were chosen to participate.
Brown represented Division 2 by shooting 50-percent from beyond the arc this season (50/100). That mark was second-highest in the state for a shooter who had at least 75 attempts.
For the contest, Geiger hit 20 in the first round, 17 in the semi-finals, and 20 in the finals for the win. He defeated Oshkosh North sophomore Phillip Flory in the finals. Jake Hierlmeier of Glenwood City and Tanner Bruchs of Poynette were also semi-finalists.
Other competitors included Blake Johnson of Oshkosh West, Cole McDonald of Darlington, Christian Haffner of Gresham, Logan Maulick of Freedom, and Bailey Kale of La Crosse Central.
