Kentucky signee Immanuel Quickley was named the co-champion of the McDonald’s All-American 3-point shooting contest after tying with Duke Blue Devils five-star signee Cameron Reddish.
Quickley went 14-for-25 in the contest, which Reddish then matched. There was no tie breaker, so the two of them shared the title at the Powerade Jam Fest at Morehouse College. UK struggled from 3-point range this year, shooting just 35.5 percent from deep as a team.

Only one player even managed to shoot 40 percent from deep (Shai Gilgeous-Alexander shot 40.4 percent from the perimeter). It’s good to see that they have a quality shooter (or two, counting Tyler Herro) coming in next year.
Quickley was the first signee for UK in the 2018 class. He’s a five-star point guard, ranked the No. 14 player in the class by 247 Sports and the No. 3 point guard.
Malik Monk won the same contest in 2016, and Kyle Wiltjer won it in 2011.
