Northwestern women’s basketball star and departing senior guard Maggie Lyon will have one final chance to show off her shooting skills.
Lyon will participate in the Women’s 3-Point Championship on March 31 to kick off Final Four weekend in Houston. The event is part of the State Farm College Slam Dunk and 3-Point Championships, which also features a men’s 3-Point shootout and slam dunk contest.
While the Final Four will be played at NRG Stadium, the dunk contest and shootouts will take place at the Berry Center in Cypress, Tex.
Lyon missed the entirety of the Big Ten tournament in Indianapolis and Northwestern’s opening round loss to San Diego in the WNIT with a lower-body injury. She averaged 16.5 points per game this season and was named to the All-Big Ten Honorable Mention list for the fourth straight year.
Lyon is sixth all-time in scoring in Northwestern women’s basketball history and holds the program record for 3-pointers made.
