March 27, 2014
CHICAGO – Senior guard Myisha Goodwin-Coleman of the No. 16 NC State women’s basketball team (25-8) has been selected to compete at the 26th annual State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships, Intersport announced on Thursday. Goodwin-Coleman is one of just a select few NCAA women’s basketball student athletes selected to compete in the three-point shooting portion of the competition, the Buick Women’s 3-Point Championship.
Scheduled for Thursday, April 3 at 9 p.m. (ET), the event will take place just prior to the 2014 NCAA Men’s Final Four in Arlington, Texas. The competition will take place at Moody Coliseum on the campus of Southern Methodist University (SMU) and will be broadcast live on ESPN.
“Being able to participate in such a classic event is a big accomplishment,” said Goodwin-Coleman. “I’m excited about this opportunity and motivated to meet and compete against the best three-point shooters in the country.
“I had no idea about being selected until Coach (Wes) Moore announced it upon our arrival in Los Angeles (for the NCAA Tournament) this past weekend.”
As a senior, Goodwin-Coleman was consistently ranked within the NCAA’s top 25 in three-pointers made per game. Not only was she a sharp shooter, but she was also a playmaker: the senior led the Wolfpack with a 2.4 assist-to-turnover ratio before her season was unfortunately cut short due to an injury suffered Feb. 20 at No. 7 Duke.
Goodwin-Coleman achieved what only 29 others had ever done on Feb. 6 in a win over Wake Forest. With 16 points against the Demon Deacons, the Lorton, Va., native became the 30th Wolfpacker in the history of the program to achieve 1,000 points in her NC State career.
The senior ranks third in school history with 234 made three-pointers and sixth in school history with 415 career assists.
“This honor means a lot to me and I appreciate all the support, ” she added.
