McDonald’s All-American has won the 3-point contest put on tonight. I looks like Coach Cal will have his sharpshooter again next year! Monk, a 6-foot-4 guard out of Bentonville, Ark., won the McDonald’s All American 3-point Contest in Chicago. In the finals, Monk scored 21 points while hitting four of his five shots in the money ball rack. So, the question on my mind is what will his go to celebration be? Vote on your favorite celebration from the past below!

Javonte Richardson will be a Cat!

Javonte is a 4 star recruit from (guess where?) Ohio!!! He has offers from Michigan, Syracuse, Bowling Green, and Toledo. He is a big target at 6-4 and 210 lbs! Richardson is the number 2 recruit in the state of Ohio and number 84 recruit in the nation! YAHTZEE indeed!!!

A little over a week ago Western Kentucky basketball coach Ray Harper unexpectedly resigned.

Now we know who his replacement will be…

Rick Stansbury!

The 56-year-old Stansbuy, a native of Battletown, Kentucky who attended Campbellsville, was the head coach at Mississippi State for 14 seasons. He reached an agreement to retire following the 2012 season after going 293-166 at the Starkville school. He took the Bulldogs to six NCAA Tournament appearances.

His teams were 35-29 in the SEC his last four years at Mississippi State, but the Bulldogs have gone just 51-77 since his departure. MSU was 14-17 this past season under new coach Ben Howland.

The Hilltoppers have been in the market for a new coach since Ray Harper resigned on March 17 following the suspension of three players. The former Kentucky Wesleyan coach went 90-61 in four-plus seasons as the head coach in Bowling Green. Western Kentucky finished 18-16 this past season.

Jordan Bonner stabbed 6 times

Jordan Bonner was stabbed six times over spring break.

According to Fox 8 Cleveland’s Peggy Gallek, Aristotle Lewis was arrested and charged with felonious assault for allegedly stabbing Bonner. He has since been released from jail on bond as he awaits a return to court.

Bonner told Fox 8 he was stabbed in his chest, abdomen and back, while his mother, Karen Barhams, “said the doctors told her that her son is lucky to be alive,” according to Gallek.

“This sets me back a little because I need to finish my classes and I can’t go back until I get the staples out next week,” Bonner said, per Gallek.

The linebacker—who spent four days in the hospital—is enrolled at junior college Northeastern Oklahoma A&M, but he’s slated to transfer to Kentucky this fall after committing to the Wildcats on Feb. 3, according to 247Sports.

The 3-star recruit also had offers from the University of Tennessee, the University of Louisville and the University of Nebraska.
