Immanuel Quickley named Co-Champion of McDonald’s Three-Point Shootout

Kentucky’s Immanuel Quickley and Keldon Johnson are representing the Big Blue Nation this week at the McDonald’s All-American events, and one of them has already made his mark on the event.

In the Three-Point Shootout, Quickley scored 17 points to take home co-champion honors, tied with Duke’s Cam Reddish.

KSR’s own Nick Roush is in Atlanta this week covering the event and has the footage:

Kentucky fans have been begging for shooters, and they absolutely got one in Quickley.

Now, time for Keldon Johnson to put on a show in the Dunk Contest…

    If Zion is in the Dunk Contest, I imagine it’s as good as over.
    Go Cats though!
    Cannot wait to get IQ on campus.

    Outside shooting could actually be a strength of next year’s team.

    Next year will be the most complete Cal team since 2015. Inside presence, good guards, good rebounding, size, shooting, depth, athleticism, experience.

    Nice shooting we should have some real good shooters next year. Now with our bigs and the shooters coming in and with Green and Quickley running the floor we should be a dam good team

      Cal will never use the term “platoon” again, but his substitutions next year will effectively be almost that, especially if we get one of the “big three” from this year’s team to come back (which is looking more possible every day).

    An outside threat again should make a difference,. Something we didn’t have this year. Hope they can hit free throws. Interesting read on Cal’s losses int the tournaments by the Herald. All because of poor free throw shooting, and the championship game he lost at Memphis to Kansas was because of poor free throw shooting. Practice practice practice.

    You guys are funny. Calipari doesn’t want his PG shooting from perimeter. He wants then to drive to rim, or lob, or kick out if defense steps up. Shai was one of the best 3-point shooters on the team, and was projected to primarily play 2-guard, but once Cal put him at the 1, he forgot his shot. Look back at “horse with Rex”, Shai barely missed, by mid season he barely ever shot outside of 10 ft
