Shoni Schimmel won the women's 3-pointer championship, then defeated the winner of the men's division as well.

Watch Shoni Schimmel Prove She's the Best Shooter in College Ball


On Thursday, Louisville Cardinals senior Shoni Schimmel, Umatilla, was nothing but clutch in the Buick three-point contest. After winning the women's title, she bested the men's contest winner to earn top all-around honors. 

Just two days earlier, Schimmel had poured in 31 points, including three 3-pointers in the last 30 seconds, in a heartbreaking loss to Maryland that denied the Cardinals a spot in the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament.

Schimmel looked lackluster in the first round of the shootout, scoring just 14 points (out of a possible 30) and moving on to the semifinals tied with Nebraska's Jordan Hooper for lowest score. There she put up 22 points, at one point dropping 11 bombs in a row, good for a slot against Duke's Tricia Liston (who scored 24). In the final, Schimmel made her last eight consecutive threes to defeat Liston 22-16.

Then the Umatilla Thrilla beat the men's winner, Brady Heslip of Baylor, in similar fashion, notching 22 and sinking her final seven shots. Here's the video:
