AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -New Mexico's Tony Danridge beat Charlotte's Charlie Coley III in the college slam-dunk contest Thursday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
In the final round, Coley received a perfect 50 from the judges after a dunk off a pass from Rhode Island's Jimmy Baron in the stands. Danridge, though, forced a dunk-off with his third 50 of the competition with a two-ball, two-handed double dunk.
Coley then dunked over judge Jalen Rose for a 48, and Danridge ended it with a left-handed windmill for a 49.
Miami's Jack McClinton won the men's 3-point contest, beating Erik Kangas of nearby Oakland University 22-17 in the final.
Furman's Melissa Liebschwager beat Arizona State's Briann January 19-14 in the women's 3-point final, but lost 17-15 to McClinton in a battle of the sexes.
