Hammon wins 3-point contest

Becky Hammon of the San Antonio Silver Stars won the 3-point shooting contest, hitting 14 of 25 shots in the final. Two of the shots were two-point "money balls" giving her 16 points as she beat out former UConn star Sue Bird of the Seattle Storm and the Detroit Shock's Katie Smith total of 12 points.

Hammon was also the top scorer in the preliminary round with 14 points. Smith was second with 12 and Bird needed to make her final shot to edge out the New York Liberty's Shameka Christon 11-10 for the final spot in the championship round.

In the skills challenge, former UConn forward Charde Houston of the Minnesota Lynx combined with Cappie Pondexter of the Phoenix Mercury and San Antonio's Sophia Young to beat out the three other teams.
