Quarterfinal Round

I'm Chris Whalen, your panda in the press, here with your coverage of the 2018 All Star Week Dunk Contest...

The order of the first round was determined at random.

Leon Delmont

Leon walks on to the court and positions his teammate, Lance Wildfyre, to stand in the middle of the paint, and instructs him to hold a basketball just a few inches above his head. Grabbing a second ball, the cougar dribbles beyond the three point line, taking a moment to wave his paws at the crowd to spur on their cheering.

Dribbling quickly to achieve a full sprint towards the rabbit, he launches himself into the air a foot inside the free throw line. Starting with the ball in his left paw, he deftly exchanges the ball from between his legs to his right paw. Completing the quick exchange a moment before reaching Lance, he allows his now free left paw to turn and scoop up the ball held by the rabbit as he soars over top of him.

Now with a ball in both paws, he brings his both of them around to dunk in quick succession, before landing gracefully under the hoop.

"Man, this was killer. It looked hard as hell but you totally pulled it off and it was pretty smooth too. Can't not give it a 10. Hope this sets the tone for the whole competition!" -- Jerome Collison
"You know, it’s pretty impressive that you managed to keep both basketballs steady, let alone get them both in the hoop. Really wish you’d have gotten into the air before the charity stripe, but that was solid." -- Kendall Fletcher
"With the use of two balls, I'm not sure if I can call this a dunk a much as it is a circus trick. That said, it's one that easily could have been a case of trying to do too much. Credit to Leon for executing this difficult sequence." -- Cedric O'Toole
"Startin' off with a bang! Gotta hand it to you, I expected a great dunk, but a cuppa too tree in da same go? Dat's what we talkin' 'bout! Great job" -- Jack Evans
"I'm on TV, so I can't exactly use the words I have in mind to describe that, but seriously, that was awesome! Here I would have thought you could only do that in lunar gravity with a trampoline. Good lord, man..." -- Sandra Harris

Josh Severt

A large, circus-style hoop is erected in such a way that it hovers only a few feet over the top of the key: out of one end of the hoop, sparkly streamers are attached, and the hoop is at an angle so the streamers face outwards. As the lights dim, a trampoline is secured at the top of the key, relatively close to the hoop with the streamers. A brief bit of narration is heard, delivered by a deep-voiced woman with an ambient soundtrack played in the background.

They say that many menaces originate from the sea. But there are some forces that can't be counted on. Yet again, they come from the sea...

Blue light bathes the arena. A single spotlight shines on Josh, who is dressed in a blue basketball uniform that is glittering with some kind of cheap gem. He stands all the way at the other end of the court, dribbling a basketball in time with the slowly ebbing musical track as it builds in intensity.

And the sea will come and show what it is capable of, for it is mighty and un-tameable!

With this, Josh rushes forward, jumping as he reaches the trampoline. He bursts through the hoop; the streamers explode out, as blue as everything else, as Josh performs a double front flip, lifting the ball over his head, and attempting to dunk it into the basket.

Unfortunately, he isn’t quite close enough to the basket, and as the ball comes down, it bounces off the rim and goes askew.

"That hurts, you know? I was into the theatrics, really was. Any time the trampoline comes out, I’m skeptical, though. Still, the double flip was super impressive. Shame it didn’t go in, but points for the performance piece." -- Kendall Fletcher

'See, all the fancy stuff at the beginning was fun. But you gotta make the dunk! Woulda been really cool, and I'll give you some points for style. But I'm gonna say it again - YOU GOTTA MAKE THE DUNK!" -- Jerome Collison

"Ahh man, you may think ya the untamable sea, but ya look more like somthin' dat washed up outta da Lake. Better luck next time." -- Jack Evans
"Well, they do say the sea CAN be a cruel mistress when she wants to be, sometimes. Not a bad lead up to it, though, but ouch..." -- Sandra Harris
"Going way too big with the theatrics for Round 1 here. Clearly put in way too much thought into the presentation over, you know, the actual dunk." -- Cedric O'Toole

Erik Toivonen

Erik walks out in traditional Lapland clothing and dances with other Finnish dancers. One of the dancers makes their way out of the formation to stand below the rim and passes the ball to Erik. He jumps over the fur and attempts a windmill dunk mid-air, executing it perfectly.

"In soccer, there's the bicycle kick. In hockey, there was the spin-o-rama. In basketball? There is that and damn, but that was a beauty of a windmill! The dancing, too... man, those are some good moves." -- Sandra Harris
"Very nice. Enjoyed the dancing, all of you were great on rhythm, and the dunk’s a classic. Windmill over a fur, always a good show. Perfect execution, nice landing, but it didn’t really push the bar enough for my tastes." -- Kendall Fletcher
"This is a very good opening round dunk. Nice windmill jam over the top of another fur. And the dunker seemed to genuinely enjoy interacting with the dancers. Always good to see a contestant having fun out there." -- Cedric O'Toole
"See, this was fun, and you jumped over a dude, but anyone in a dunk contest can throw down a windmill. Gimme a little something more!" -- Jerome Collison
"Fantastic. We gotta little culture lesson, and most importantly you put the ball in da hoop." -- Jack Evans

Adam Tevela

Adam dribbles toward the basket, and then throws the ball to the board. He leaps toward the basket, grabs the ball as it bounces off the board, and then swings the ball under one leg in mid-air, before grabbing it with the other paw and dunking it hard into the basket over his head.

"THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT! You got some serious air on that dunk! I’m more impressed that you played the bounce so perfectly. Setting a high bar for yourself from the start, LOVE IT." -- Kendall Fletcher
"WHOA! Okay, that was awesome! Good Lord, fellas, if this is round one, what're you guys busting out for the next round...? Thank God you go that shot right on the money, too, because that poor woman in the fourth row just spilled her popcorn everywhere." -- Sandra Harris
"Now that was a goooooooooood dunk. Not perfect - not the best I've seen so far - but that was a really good dunk." -- Jerome Collison
"A very good dunk. I like the use of the backboard in particular. I feel like it's missing something, though. It's a good enough dunk to get into this contest, but I'm not sure it's quite good enough to get you to the next round." -- Cedric O'Toole
"I love da throwback dunks. Show dat ball who's da boss!" -- Jack Evans

Sterling Bengtzing

Without much flare, a tall, muscular figure stands at the edge of the court, dressed completely head to toe in black, with a ski-mask covering its face completely. It sprints quickly towards the hoop, sinking the ball with its two paws in a rather straightforward manner, and walks towards the judges to hear their commentary.

As a perplexed judge starts to talk, the black clad figure takes its mask off, revealing not a polecat, but a panther. Craig Reinhardt swiftly throws the ball in the judges' direction as another completely-black silhouette on the spot lunges to catch the ball mid-air before it hits the table.

This figure takes off its own mask, revealing himself to actually be Sterling, who quickly takes position in front of the hoop. Running towards, the mustelid slams the ball hard on the floor as he gets close to the 3 point line, but the ball doesn’t bounce the way he’d like, and he catches it in order to make another lap around the court, this time sending it straight up. He waits for the right time to catch it, and jumps as he catches the ball with both paws, his shifting hair catching the stadium lights in a halo around his form.

Sterling contorts his body in an attempt to complete two full spins, but doesn’t quite make it the full 720 degrees. He does manage to sink it with one paw despite not making a complete second rotation.

"... that's it? Um... I mean, I was expecting—... Wait, wha—... WHOA! ... Okay, THAT was pretty cool! Not gonna lie, if you'd made it on the first try, that would have been absolutely perfect... damn, though, that was pretty neat trick." -- Sandra Harris
"Jesus Christ, I'm awake I swear! I think yous just wanted to take our heads off. Loved the mystery though." -- Jack Evans
"WHAT. WHAT IN THE WORLD. You got me good, man. And the dunk, are you SERIOUS!? I can’t give you full points cause you didn’t nail the last rotation, but I am thoroughly impressed by you taking off from the woods." -- Kendall Fletcher
"Ugh, again with the dramatic presentation. Mystery furs in jumpsuits and the reveal of secret identities? This isn't the comics. At least this contestant actually made his dunk, though he didn't quite nail that 720." -- Cedric O'Toole
"I'm...uh...a bit confused. The end result was...pretty good? Good dunk. I liked it. Hard to do. Don't think you needed all that wacky stuff beforehand though." -- Jerome Collison

Marshall Anderson-Rhodes

Marshall starts his dunk by walking out with the ball and raising his arms emphatically in a "Come on, louder" rouse to the crowd to get them excited.

Next, he walks up nonchalantly to the basket, purposely creating suspense. After examining the rim, he turns his sights to the basket support and starts to approach it. Marshall hands the ball off to a teammate and starts to climb the support post, relying on many years of parkour and extreme climbing experience in his youth/adolescence. He gets on top of it and stands up straight on his feet.

Making his way carefully to the backboard by getting around the shot clock, he again pumps up the crowd. Satisfied with the result, he performs a roundhouse flip off the top of the backboard, while the teammate lobs him the ball lightly near the front of the rim.

Marshall grabs the ball with both paws while inverted, but the grab is messy, and when he continues to the point of being horizontal, looking down at the rim, he does a small overhead pump and attempts to slam the ball down into the hoop using both paws. However, his paws are too close together, and when he makes contact with the basket, the ball rockets past the front of the rim and ricochets off the glass, grazing the tops of his paws as he headbutts the ball in an attempt to make it go back in, which it does after some rattling around.

He hangs from the rim to avoid crashing into the ground, and swinging forcefully forward using his legs to generate forward momentum. He lets go as his feet swing upright under him, propelling forward off the rim with a double backboard slap and executing a slightly off balanced landing, but ends up recovering as he finishes in a crouch in front of the basket support, hands in front of him on the ground like a sprinter, head down for dramatic flair.

"WHERE DID YOU GET THE IDEA FOR THIS!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? You’re far braver than I, that’s for sure. Takes some major guts to be up on the backboard, let alone FLIP from it. Man, the headbutt save, too... beautiful stuff. Gotta dock you for the landing and the messy slam, but I love the daredevil beginning!" -- Kendall Fletcher
Jack sits back down after doing a bit of nervous pacing behind the judges table during the dunk. "Okay, okay. I don't know if you got a lotta guts or if you're just a little nuts. Promise me you ain't gonna break your neck on the next trick!" -- Jack Evans
"I certainly appreciate the risk you took here, taking off for a flip off the top of the hoop. But you also didn't quite pull this daring stunt off." -- Cedric O'Toole
"Whoa! Almost didn't make it, but nice work on sticking the landing! I kinda wish this was Pyeongchang at the Olympics so I could award points just for tricks in the air, but hey. Also, I feel like this needs to be said... Kids, do NOT try that at home! That man is a professional." -- Sandra Harris
"I mean...the setup was cool. And the ball did go in? I guess? The thing is, though, you gotta make the dunk! That's not a dunk! The headbutt was fun though." -- Jerome Collison

Scoonie Barrett

Scoonie approaches the court, bringing in a male beaver volunteer. He stands him under the basket, directing him to hold a ball just above his head. He takes his starting place in the right corner and runs towards the basket. As he jumps above the beaver, he grabs the ball with both paws, but instead of dunking it, he throws it behind his back then slams it forcefully through the hoop using his rudder.

"He dunked it with his tail! I've seen a ton of dunks, and I've watched every All Star Dunk Contest since they started it in the '80s, but I can't say I've ever seen this before. This is creativity. This is innovation. This is the Dunk Contest at its best. The only downside to this dunk is that it's going to be near impossible to top. If I had my way, I'd give this man the trophy right now." -- Cedric O'Toole
She looks behind herself for a moment as her ears wilt, then perk back up. "... man, I wish I could do that. Jackals weren't built to do trick shots with their tails, I suppose. That was pretty cool!" -- Sandra Harris
"Ooh, that was fun. Not a 10, but it was fun to watch. Creative, using everything you've got. I like that." -- Jerome Collison
"Ohhhhhhh man. Talk about a fake out; I fully expected the two-hander there. Forceful dunk, clean execution... very satisfying to see! Wish there were a few more risks taken, though." -- Kendall Fletcher
"Da jury is out on use of tail, but I'm impressed either way. Reminds me of da stuff I'd see out in da neighborhood prairie." -- Jack Evans

Yves Carbonneau

Yves stands front and center to the basket, and dribbles a couple of times. He takes a moment to judge the distance, as he moves the ball back and forth between his paws. Satisfied with his calculations, he takes a few steps back, signaling that he is ready. Yves starts dribbling, and then throws the ball up into the air to it gets a high enough bounce for him to catch it. Not satisfied with the bounce, he grabs the ball and heads back to his starting position to reset. The second attempt is much cleaner.

As he starts running towards the basket, he leaps, catching the ball in his paws from the bounce, and turns in the air so that his back faces the basket and flushes it down with a backwards, two-handed dunk, before landing cleanly on his feet.

"Dis guy right here! Dis guy. Right. Here. I'll say it again, gotta love da classics." -- Jack Evans
"Okay, that second one was a lot better, yeah. Still, nice work sticking the landing and the dunk itself was on point!" -- Sandra Harris
"Clean, solid, but I've seen it before. I'll give it a good score because it was really well-done. Gimme something I haven't seen, though." -- Jerome Collison
"Kind of disappointing that it took two tries, but I can’t begrudge you too much for it. The basketball bounces fickly, after all." As for the dunk itself, man I wish you’d done a 540 and not just a simple 180. Good finish, but it left me wanting more. -- Kendall Fletcher
"Nice two hand reverse jam, good display of power. It's pretty basic by Dunk Contest standards, though." -- Cedric O'Toole

Semifinal Round

The order of the second round was determined by the winner for the first round, Leon Delmont.

Erik Toivonen

Erik waits for the go-ahead before dribbling toward the basket. He leaps, and does a 360 spin in the air, finishing with a Tomahawk pose. On the decent, he realizes he’s jumped too early, and while his form is on-point, he tries to extend his arm as far as he can, but the ball doesn’t connect with the rim at all, and he lands the pose, ball still in hand.

"Well that's disappointing, an air ball dunk. Ambitious trying to go for the tomahawk 360, but didn't have a chance after mistiming the jump." -- Cedric O'Toole
"Ouch. It’s really a shame you didn’t even touch the rim, because I was ready for that iron to rock from a vicious tomahawk! At least your form was picture perfect, but MAN, what a disappointment." -- Kendall Fletcher
"Well, points for sticking the landing and that was an awesome spin move, but... this is a DUNK contest, after all... and it didn't make it through the net." -- Sandra Harris
"I mean, I saw what you were trying to do, and it was gonna be cool, but that, uh, wasn't a dunk. I don't know that I need to say anything else." -- Jerome Collison
"Hey, great form and all. I admire that ya didn't bail, so here's half credit." -- Jack Evans

Adam Tevela

Adam walks out wearing a set of pilot goggles. As Wagner's "Flight of the Valkyries" plays from the loudspeakers, he poses like a corny superhero, with his fists pressing onto the sides of his waist as he looks out at the crowd with a smile. He then picks up the basketball and points a finger straight toward the basket in front of him in another dramatic pose. He hams it up for the crowd a little, but it looks like he is clearly having fun as well. He dribbles the ball toward the basket and leaps with it, pumping the ball as his body pivots and slams the ball in with both paws behind his head! Upon dismount, he poses dramatically one more time, to the sound of the roaring crowd.

"I used to read comics as a kid, and YOU were like a hero straight outta those pages." -- Jack Evans
"All the showmanship was fun, and I love players who can get the crowd involved, but the dunk itself wasn't as cool as it could have been. Still, it was pretty solid." -- Jerome Collison
"Well, the crowd loves it, and you can't argue with a fan reaction like that. Way to put on a show, lad. And the dunk was pretty good too." -- Cedric O'Toole
"Haha! It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Super Lisang! Oh, man, that was just perfect! By the way, to the ONE guy in the astronaut office who shall remain nameless? ~THAT'S~ HOW IT'S DONE! Your move now, buddy." -- Sandra Harris
"LOVE THE THEATRICS! You clearly had fun doing that ham routine; I could see it clear as day with your body language. I wish I could rate it higher, but a 180 two-hander just doesn’t sit high on the difficulty ladder, especially compared to some of the ones we’ve already seen." -- Kendall Fletcher

Scoonie Barrett

Scoonie starts from outside the 3-point line and throws himself a lob pass, but doesn’t seem to be satisfied with the angle, so he retrieves the ball and tries again. The lob is much more lofty the second time, giving the otter enough time to catch it as he goes up to dunk. While in mid-air, Scoonie taps the basketball off the backboard to himself with his left paw, then catches it back with the right one and slams it forcefully toward the hoop, but it hits the back of the rim and bounces back out.

"...er... can I see the first thing you did again, because that one was... well. At least that one got closer to the rim than the first one of this round did, if nothing else, but it would have been a bit more impressive if it had gone off right on the first go." -- Sandra Harris
"Woo, man you got skills! But it just wasn't enough to pay the bills. We sure these basketballs are properly inflated?" -- Jack Evans
"Ahhhhhhh man, that was so close! Woulda been awesome. I'll give you some pity points, though." -- Jerome Collison
"Lot I could say here, but ugh, what a disappointing result. Like the backboard tap pass, but the lob took two tries and you misjudged the dunk itself. Can’t be happy about Korbering that one, nope." -- Kendall Fletcher
"I had a feeling the lad was going to have a tough time topping that amazing tail dunk. But wow, if he didn't try his hardest to do just that. This would have been a tremendous dunk if he had made it. Off the back of the rim, that's painful." -- Cedric O'Toole

Leon Delmont

Leon lines up from the free throw line with his back to the basket, squaring himself up he plants his paws wider than shoulder width apart. His dunk starts with a hard bounce of the ball between his legs, sending it on a high arc towards the basket.

Quickly turning himself around he accelerates towards the hoop as the ball begins to descend rapidly. Planting his feet, the cougar pushes hard off the ground, applying an angular moment to force his body to spin after launching into the air just as the ball bounces off the backboard to the left of the rim, but his paw slips slightly on the ascent, and he doesn’t get quite as much height as he did on his first dunk.

Catching the ball in his left paw soon after leaving the ground, the dunker deftly exchanges it behind his back to his right paw as his body spins rapidly, completing a 360 degree rotation through the jump. Now facing the rim with the ball in his right paw he extends it out to slam it deep into the hoop, but his timing is off from the missed leap. He grabs the rim to pull himself back up close enough to get the ball in, but the flow of the dunk his interrupted, and though he’s able to pop the ball into the basket, the momentum of the dunk is lost, along with the finesse of a strong finish, as he drops down off the rim.

"Well, at least you made it into the hoop. But ugh, that jump was sloppier than a barbecue sauce-laden loose meat sandwich. Good recovery, nice exchange.

"That was...kind of a mess. The setup was pretty cool, but you gotta execute! You made it, though, so I can't dock THAT much." -- Jerome Collison
"Whoa! Nice moves on that one... but the finish looked a little off. Still though, this earns serious points for actually going into the net and looking good while doing it, for my money." -- Sandra Harris
"One more very ambitious dunk in this second round the dunker couldn't quite pull off. Credit to him for getting the ball in the basket this time though." -- Cedric O'Toole
"There was so much goin on with this dunk, I didn't know what I was lookin at! Kudos for gettin through the hoop, but it was super jank." -- Jack Evans

Final Round

The order of the last round was determined by the winner for the previous round, Adam Tevela.

Leon Delmont

Standing at the 3 point line, Leon starts to dribble the ball, staring down the hoop. After a moment he shakes his head and lets the ball bounce to the ground as he lifts both arms up and waves his paws, motioning for attendants to bring something in.

A mix of gasps and cheers emanates from the crowd as two portable basketball hoops are wheeled onto the court, positioned at an angle to the original hoop such that the two portable rims were five feet apart.

Two additional balls are rolled onto the court courtesy of the retreating attendants. With a giant smirk Leon changes his position, this time backing up all the way to the half court line, one ball in his paws while the other two lay at his footpaws.

The launch of the first ball high in the air signals the start of his dunk, which is followed by him scooping up the two balls at his side and dribbling both toward the hoops in a sprint. As he crosses the free throw line, the first thrown ball makes its first bounce, reverbing high up in the air. Leon only has a moment to watch the ball and visualize the arc before he palms both of the other balls and jumps, applying torque as he does so to cause him to rotate and catch the thrown ball with his tail. With his back to the basket, he aims to slams all three balls in simultaneously between the three hoops, but while the two side hoops go in, the middle ball rolls around the rim a couple times. As Leon is hanging from the side baskets, he waits long enough for the ball to roll around the rim for a while before falling in, hanging on for a just moment longer after before dropping smoothly to the court

"Man, I was worried there for a second. Great dexterity. This dunk blew me away." -- Jack Evans
"Aw MAN that was awesome! Woulda been even better if all three were clean but I'm not complaining. That looked hard as hell as-is." -- Jerome Collison
"Whoa! That was almost perfect! If all three had gone in at once, it would have been flawless! Nice work!" -- Sandra Harris
"I wasn’t sure to make of the portable hoops, really. But I’m not gonna sugarcoat it; while I’m highly impressed with you getting all three balls to the baskets, I can’t give you full points because the tail dunk only just went down. Huge props for doing it behind the back, though!" -- Kendall Fletcher
"What an incredible display of balance and coordination! The tail dunk didn't quite work as well as he wanted, it had to roll around the rim a few times, but still! Where's that lad Hirvonen of the Totems, he needs to see these gymnastics moves! Wow!" -- Cedric O'Toole


Adam Tevela

As Adam’s turn comes up, the crowd waits for a while, but it looks like Adam has disappeared. The officials look at their watches, and call that if the linsang doesn’t show up within a period of 5 minutes, he will be disqualified. Shortly before time runs out, a green 1971 Volkswagen Bus drives onto the court and parks just in front of the basketball post, parallel to the free-throw line. Adam steps out to the vehicle to a roaring crowd.

He gets into his starting position, and dribbles toward the bus. The linsang leaps in an attempt to jump over the boxy, rectangular-shaped, iconic vehicle, posing in a classic tomahawk-style as he approaches the basket. He doesn’t get enough height, and it’s clear his intention to leap over the bus does not seem plausible. Adam quickly adjusts as he improvises by using the roof of the bus as a springboard to save the dunk, a little shaky on his feet as he looks for purchase on the classic car, able to recover enough to regain a slightly less-than perfect tomahawk pose as he dunks the ball in.

"Major nostalgia points for taking me back to college by bringing in that classic Volkswagen. Didn't clear the bus as cleanly as he would have wanted, but way to make a quick adjustment to save the dunk as well as he could. I really enjoyed this dunk, it was a fun one." -- Cedric O'Toole
"Okay... First off, you get serious points for the car, because where the HELL do you even find a classic VW Type 2 in 2018 in THAT good of a condition and how in the name of God did you get that bastard in here without anyone seeing it?! Holy crap, that was amazing... also, I need to talk to your props manager, because I’ve been trying to find a good one of those for ages..." -- Sandra Harris
"You kept us waiting almost too long, man. And that put a sour taste on my beak. But I gotta admit, you piqued my interest with that old Bus. Really wish you’d cleared it instead of using the roof as a springboard. And the tomahawk itself had flaws. But that was still some SICK air just to get that high in the first place, and at least the ball went through cleanly. Hope you’re willing to shell out repairs if that roof is dented, though." -- Kendall Fletcher
"I was worried you'd dipped, but then I goes, "no way, he's gonna jump over a bus?!" -- Jack Evans
"Man...you made the dunk...but if you set up something like that, you gotta deliver! Still not bad, but I can't help but be disappointed that you couldn't pull off what we saw you were trying to do." -- Jerome Collison

2018 FBA 3-Point Shootout

To combat fatigue from the players while still featuring as many sharpshooters as possible, players were only seeded against each other in the first round based on their voting results. Winners of the elimination bracket round will not be matched up against each other in the second round, only having to be one of the top three scores in order to advance to the final round.

The Event took place canonically on Saturday, February 24 at 9 PM EST.

One part of the ‘#splashfurs’ from Dakota starts off the event having received the most votes from the FBA fanbase.

Coming in hot, he hits the first four shots in quick order, before missing the crucial money ball on the first rack. Going into the next rack he fails to establish a real rhythm making only three of the next six shots.

The back half is where the weasel finally kicks it back into gear, hitting the three money balls and only missing four shot over the last three racks; putting up an impressive score of 21 to start off the round!

Silver fox from Montana comes into the event looking for revenge after her early exit at last years event to the eventual champion.

She comes flying out of the gates tearing up the first two racks with only two misses on the fourth ball of both racks. Struggles begin in the second rack when the three middle balls fail to find their target, though it takes more than a few misses to discombobulate the fox as she takes her time on the money ball and makes it in. Going into the final rack she needed to make all five shots to tie the current high score. After making the first four with ease she let sail the final shot which was good! However, upon video review, she shot the ball after the clock had expired and it was wiped from her score.

In the end she finished with a solid 19 points.

Another 3-point contest regular seeking redemption under the new system after being knocked out by future 2017 Finalist Jonathan Lawyer at last years contest.

He starts off strong, holding pace with the previous two shooters until the third rack were he kicks it into a gear we didn’t know he had, missing only two of his final thirteen shots to catapult himself into the lead with 22 points.

Oh did I mention he had to leave two ball on the rack due to time expiring?

One of the three last year Finalists finds himself representing a new team this year.

An uncharacteristic poor start from the rabbit as he misses one..two..three…...eight of his first shots?! The displeasure is clear on the rabbit's face as he takes time to try and reset before his ninth shot...which he makes! As if the one shot was all that it took to break the dam, Lance starts knocking down shot after shot with only an occasional miss. As the minute closes he manages to hit the final moneyball, having gone on a scoring flurry by making thirteen of his final seventeen shots, resulting in a score of 16.

Part two of the ‘#splashfurs’ from the Bikers, but this meerkat plays no second fiddle as he sits in the top three in scoring and 3-pointers made so far this season and is looking to take the next step after his appearance in last years 3-point Finals.

Jon breezes through all the racks, only ever missing back to back balls once in the right side rack. Unfortunately, the clock was not on his side and his last moneyball remained on the rack making it impossible to tie the leader; however, a score of 20 pushes him into third place with eleven players to go.

Is fourth time the charm for the Canadian arctic fox? Yves has failed to find success in the contest over the past three years, having fallen in the first round two years in a row, once to eventual the eventual 2016 Champion Cliff Matthiews. Can he find success this year?

Unfortunately, the first rack is brutal for the fox as he fails to make a single bucket. His fortune turns as he moves onto the second rack and manages to hit eight of his next ten at a more cautious pace. However, it comes to cost him as time ticked down far faster than he had hoped, leaving two shots uncounted in the end and a score of 15. The fox can only hope his first rack stumble will not cost him as he currently sits at the bottom.

Whatever momentum the opossum built with his four quick makes came to screeching halt on the first rack moneyball. If this were a game show he surely would have just hit the bankrupt space as nothing seemed to work even as Hank slowed down between shots only managing to make another six shots after his impressive start, none of which were the coveted double point moneyball. All of this resulted in an underwhelming score of 10, with an unfortunate four balls left on his final rack unshot.

2016 3-Point Champion looks to reclaim the title after an early knockout last year to Marcus Knight.

His first shot is an ominous sign as he puts too much power behind it from the corner rack, sending it beyond the hoop. He seemed to recover quickly nailing the next two and the eventual moneyball. However he never found a consistent rhythm, three misses, four makes, and failed to connect another two back to back after that one long streak; in the end only managed to put up 13 points.

Being the only rookie competing this year in the 3-Point Contest puts a lot of expectations on the young eurasian lynx.

The start of his night is strong, managing to hit six of his first eight shots. Yet the Biloxi Voodoo rookie has had some bad mojo seemingly placed on him, as he only hits another two shots of his final fifteen. Perhaps the pressure goes to the young rook, or dark magic was at work as we see the only rookie put up a score of 8, being the first to be eliminated.

Derek Kim

Kim must feel some pressure after watching the collapse of fellow Voodoo player Kuusik. Derek himself making his second 3-Point Contest appearance after his Tiebreaker knockout in the first round against Matthew Silvius two years ago.

The kkachi starts off shaky, flopping back and forth between makes and misses, but makes the one that counts the most with the first moneyball rack. Finally, he breaks his uneasy streak at the end of his second rack and carries a five-shot streak through the middle of the round. Yet stamina seems to become an issue moving into the final half as his streak comes to an end and the misses start to build and he slows as time winds down. His final shot ends up not counting, leaving two balls unshot and posting up a score of 15, causing him to sit tied with Yves in 6th place.

The cheetah from the Nevada Desert represents the Wildcards in her third 3-Point Contest appearance aims to score a minimum of 13 points to be in contention of moving on to the next round.

She hits a rough patch early missing five in a row over her first and second rack and is unable to hit either of the first moneyballs. A spark of hope comes as she moves to the top rack and manages to convert four of the five keeping her chances alive a little longer before they are snuffed out by a poor showing in her last eight shots finishing with a disappointing 11 points.

For Randulf Mackenbach this is his first appearance in the 3-Point Contest and will be the second Tides player in this year’s competition.

After a quick start, things turn sour and the wistar rat is unable to score the moneyball. Frustration seems to set in as he fails to score on his next four shots. But like a switch Randy turns it on and catches fire, putting together the best run so far tonight with a seven shot streak as a part of an unbelievable twelve out of thirteen run before faltering on his last two shots. The hot streak proved to be enough to catapult the rat into fifth place with a score of 18 with four shooters to go.

From the first couple of seconds, you'd swear this is not Akiak Pratt's first go at the three-point contest. But here he was having a decent run and connecting the important shots. It seemed to go pretty well for the blonde husky. But then, in the last 15 seconds, he stumbled and fell down, some precious time lost. It was clear that he tried his best among the havoc, but nothing managed to happen. Time was over with two shots to spare, and unfortunately his score of 14 points will not be enough to pass to the second round.

While many considered him an outsider compared to the rest of the contestants, the unique-looking shrimp didn't let this challenge fog him. His form and shooting were not perfect, he moved with remarkable speed across the line, and managed to connect every shot that counted (namely the special two-pointers) A string of a few misses were immediately redeemed with a string of connections where it mattered and finishing all the round with time to spare. With 18 points, it is sure Christian will enjoy his pass to the second round and kept all eyes on him, so much for being only notable for looks.

A constant in the contest, he showed it well with a good chain of seven shots after his first bonus shot, ranking up a respectable amount of points from the get go. The second half didn't go as hot, but the two-pointers were a given. He'd have gotten more with more time allowed, missing a fair share of good opportunities as time ran out, but 17 points is enough to guarantee to see him through to the second round while eliminating both Yves Carbonneau and Derek Kim

From the flawless first shot, one would have thought the Minutemen's woman-in-charge would be one to watch despite being confirmed in the very last slot. But then the next one bounced off the rim... then the next one went to space... then the next one juuuust missed by a fraction. While usually decent from the perimeter, this was a bit of proof of her status as great playmaker, but not an exclusive finisher. Missing all the bonus shots and having a good streak too late (even if she connected the last 2 point shot, it was overtime and annulled) meant that with 9 points, the Puerto Rican athlete would bow out of the contest

The saluki from Hawaii comes into the second round riding the wave high after his dominating showing in the first round. But can he reproduce such a result as the competition gets tougher or will he wipeout?

Julian seems to have been blessed with the Midas touch as everything from the first two racks dropped in as if it were expected, quickly racking up fourteen points off his ridiculous twelve shot streak to start the round. Just as it seemed he would never miss the fifteenth shot rattled off the rim and halted the growing cheers. Another three back to back misses didn’t deter Julian as he put another streak of six together to wrap up the round with the clock expiring, setting the bar quite high with a score of 21.

Back on the court, the weasel finds himself needing to exceed his last round score if he hopes to leapfrog Julian in the standing and improve his chances of moving on to the next round.

Unlike his competitor, Matthew can’t find a rhythm through the first rack as he misses two, including the all important moneyball. Though he is not out of it yet as he puts together an impressive shot streak through the second and third rack! Only for frustration to streak across his face as the third rack’s moneyball ricochets off the rim ending his streak at seven.

After that the weasel is never able to find a solid footing splitting the rest of his shots and ending on three straight misses to rack up a reasonable score of 18, but will it be enough to push him through to the next round?

After receiving a fistbump from his weasel teammate, Jon walks onto the court, ready to fight is way back to the finals.

A rocky start with two early misses is brushed aside by the cool meerkat as he sinks the next six. Though trouble rears its head as he finds himself behind both Julian and Matt’s pace going into the middle of the fourth rack. It’s here that it all seemed to click for Jon, as every shot he put up found its mark. An impressive finish to the round ended with a seven shot streak and a score of 21! Tying Jon with current leader Julian Cross-Kiraly.

Three contestants down and Kresta finds herself in a challenging spot. Needing to match her score of nineteen from last round just to avoid the immediate danger of being on the bubble is bound to put pressure on the Howler.

Perhaps she thrives under that pressure! This former FBA finalist starts off strong only missing one shot on her first two racks has kept her just on pace with the current leaders. However the strain of constantly putting up threes seems to be eating away at her stamina as she struggles on the next rack only hitting the two middle balls, yet she doesn’t panic and slows down her pace a little which improves her results on the fourth rack. With time down to the wire Kresta drains her last ball, managing to get it off with only .2 seconds to spare. With that she forces her way to the top, creating a three way tie for first with 21 points!

The only Forward left in the running, the Bangor rat got into position with good form, but the first seconds were a hit and miss tandem. A good streak of 5 out of 6 were followed by a string of 4 misses. Even if he tried to salvage in the last second, his 15 points will not be enough to pass.

The shrimp started with great speed and shape, yet the points were sporadic. For as great as Christian's shape was, he could not get as good of a streak going as his last round. As a yes-no final run happened, to great effort and completed the whole run in good time, his 13 points were not enough to go for the next round.

The otter started decently, he looked like competition. But for the streaks that happened, not much two-pointers happened, not managing to raise his point rate up. A hot-cold final run ensured he ended up with 13 points, and he will have to bow out of this one.

Unlike his first round effort, the rabbit had a strong string of connections from the get-go. Misses were sporadic, chains of connections were on point, especially going on the way to the end. Even if he missed some money shots, his respectable score of 21 points creates the unlikely scenario were all four contestants moving forward have tied!

Due to all four finalists scoring the same to make it to the finals, the order will be based on the time it took to achieve that score, with the fastest shooter going first and so on until all four have gone.

Riding high off two very successful rounds, the saluki will go first with the fastest time last round.

Three quick makes signal a strong start for his first finals appearance, but it goes off the rails as a flurry of misses bog down Julian. Whether it was the pressure, degrading stamina, or just bad luck, Julian only makes four of the next two racks. Yet the French dog is not ready to lie down as he finds his footing once again in the fourth rack putting up another four makes, including the all crucial moneyball.

As the time winds out with two balls left on the rack, the saluki leaves the court with a score of 14.

Always the bridesmaid, Lance walks onto the floor second with fire in his eyes that only someone who has come so close multiple times can have.

Shrugging off the inauspicious miss of the first shot, Lance hits a quick stride and racks up five consecutive baskets. Yet that is the most momentum he is ever able to build as his next shot thunks off the iron. Every time he builds momentum it’s knocked away with a miss, entering an uneasy pattern of two makes then a miss for nearly the rest of the three racks. However, his persistence prevails and isn’t rattled by the misses, putting up an impressive 18 points with two competitors to go.

The second of last year’s finalist to repeat his previous showing finds himself matched against a familiar foe.

Like Julian he starts off strong with a streak of three and converting the fifth ball on the first rack. But that’s all the good news Jon has for this round. Frustration shows as he’s unable to ever regain his rhythm through the last four racks, only managing to make two back to back near the very end of the round.

Disappointment is present as he walks off the court with a score of 13.

Two years ago, Kresta matched up against Lance in the high scoring semi-finals round that saw her eliminated. Can she have her revenge?

All seems to be going right for the silver fox as she keeps pace with lance through the first rack. An early miss on the second is shrugged off with a quick make, but the rack ends in a wash as she fails to hit another shot, falling behind the pace set by the rabbit. She fights on through the third rack, unable to make up any ground as she hits the moneyball.

Finally she finds her stride, breezing through the fourth rack she hits the fourth moneyball, the very ball that lance missed giving her the slight edge on scoring at this point. But she was not at the finish yet, she just needed to hit three more shots to squeak ahead of Lance. The first shot of the rack ricocheted off the rim, but the next two were good! Hurrying to the next shot she threw it up and watched as it fell through the hoop, she had done it! With a score of 19 points Kresta Renstill wins the 2018 3-Point Contest!
