CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) — In an already basketball-packed weekend in Indianapolis, Wednesday’s event at Carmel featured some high school flavor.
The American Family Insurance Slam Dunk and 3-Point Championships took place at Carmel High School, and sharpshooting Greyhound Ryan Cline took home the 3-point title.
Cline had some homecooking and a full house at the Hound Pound to help, as he went head-to-head with Indiana native Jalen Coleman, who’s committed to Illinois.
Cline had the top score among the eight competitors and had no trouble advancing to the finals where he went up against Brevin Pritzl, who’s headed to Wisconsin.
Cline got off to a slow start, but hit eight straight, and won the title, 22-19. Before the contest, we asked him about competing one last time before the home crowd.
“It’s something I’ll never forget,” said Cline. “You know, playing in front of my city one more time, Carmel, all my friends and family. It’ll be something I’ll never forget.”
Cline will be heading to West Lafayette in the fall to play for the Purdue Boilermakers.
