Penn State Hoops’ Andrew Funk To Participate In College Men’s Three-Point Championship

Andrew Funk isn’t done shooting threes in college, folks.

Penn State men’s basketball’s sharpshooter will participate in the College 3-Point Championship in Houston as part of the 34th-annual State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships.

Funk established himself as one of the best shooters in college basketball over the past five years, the last of which he spent at Penn State. In his four years at Bucknell, Funk made 190 three-point attempts, the seventh most in Bucknell history, en route to a total of 1,230 career points. With Penn State, he sunk another 112 three-point shots at a 41% clip, as he helped push the Nittany Lions to their first NCAA Tournament in 12 years.

Funk will compete against seven other three-point shooters in the men’s category, the winner of which will go on to face the women’s winner in the Battle of the Champions.

The contest will air at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 30, on ESPN2 and will be held at the Bayou Music Center. The full list of competitors will be released in the coming days.
