Firstie guard Lonnie Grayson of Army West Point Men's Basketball has been selected to the Men's 3-Point Championship roster for the 32nd annual State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships at Hinkle Fieldhouse on the Butler University Campus in Indianapolis on Thursday, April 1. Grayson is one of eight players selected for the event that will air live on ESPN2 at 9pm ET.
The firstie from Cincinnati, Ohio is a sharpshooter from deep, who ranks 10th on the Army career made three-pointers list with 169 in 102 career games. In 2021 he averaged 12.5 points, and 5.2 rebounds while shooting 33% from deep (53-of-161). He tallied eight made three-pointers vs. Central Connecticut State (8-for-12), tying for second-most in a single game in program history. His strong firstie campaign guided Army West Point to its first postseason appearance since 2015-16 and he was rewarded by being named Second Team all Patriot League. Grayson, who served as a team captain, has branched Air Defense Artillery and his first duty station is Fort Hood, Texas.
