“If I’m in it, I’m going to win it.”
The words of Terrence Woods, senior guard on the Rattler men’s basketball team, prior to competing in the National Association of Basketball Coaches NCAA three-point contest in San Antonio Thursday, proved to be prophetic.
Woods won the men’s contest, defeating a field of long-range shooters that included Stanford’s Matt Lottich, Kentucky’s Gerald Fitch and Oregon’s Luke Jackson.
Woods started slowly, finishing fourth in the quarter-final round. Posting a score of 20 in the semi-finals, Woods’ lead going into the final round against Jackson.
Posting a contest high 23 points to win the final round, Woods left his right wrist hanging in the air as he walked off the court.
Woods then went on to defeat Boston College’s Amber Jacobs in a heated battle of the sexes 16-14 to stake his claim as the most lethal 3-point shooter in America.
