Chicago Sky’s Allie Quigley wins WNBA 3-point contest for record fourth time

CHICAGO — Allie Quigley won the WNBA 3-point contest for a fourth time Saturday, putting together a perfect final.

Quigley went into the finals last, easily fending off Washington Mystics guard Ariel Atkins and Atlanta Dreams guard Rhyne Howard. After Atkins had 21 points and Howard had 14 points, Quigley rolled to 30 points.

It was a sweet win for Quigley, who hails from nearby Joliet, played college ball at DePaul and helped Chicago Sky win the WNBA title last season. Sky teammate Candace Parker cheered for them in a Quigley DePaul jersey, and Quigley’s wife, Courtney Vandersloot, another Sky Guard, also clapped excitedly on the sidelines.

Quigley said afterwards that she was 100 percent withdrawn from that event.

“Retired in my hometown: It’s a picture-perfect happy ending,” Quigley said.

New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu and Zoe Brooks, a New Jersey point guard committed to North Carolina State, won the Skills Challenge together. Ionescu and Brooks defeated Indiana Fever forward NaLyssa Smith and Victoria Flores, a prep point guard from Texas, in the final.

Ionescu said of Quigley, “I think this competition should be named after her.”

The format for the Skills Challenge tied a WNBA player with a player from the Elite Youth Basketball League who competed in the 2022 Nike Nationals for a full-court obstacle course.
