Lindsey Bowen Wins 3-Point Contest


Written by Sean Merriman

Michigan State Senior Lindsey Bowen ended her collegiate carrier with a boom. After a tough loss to number one seed Duke in the Women’s NCAA tournament, Bowen showed the nation that she wasn’t going to go out on a loosing note. The Spartan shooting guard, who is the all time leader and Michigan State in 3-pointers and 3-point field-goal percentage, won the ESPN College 3-point championship in dominating fashion.

Bowen had point totals of 19 in the first two rounds of the contest to earn her a spot in the finals against Krista Rappahahn of Stanford. After Randolph put up impressive 19 points of her own, Bowen struck back with 21 points and was crowned the women’s champion.

The games continued on, as Bowen had to go up against the men’s champion, Steve Novak of Marquette. With the odds stacked up against her, Bowen proved to be victorious yet again. She nailed an astonishing 21 of her 25 shots and went off for 13 in a row at one point in the round. Novak ended up with 17 points for the round in a losing effort.

Bowen will continue to prepare for the upcoming WNBA draft, which will take on place on April 5, and 1:00 PM.
