The WNBA rolled out the participants for the 2019 Three-Point Contest and Skills Challenge on Friday in Las Vegas.
Chicago Sky guard Allie Quigley is back to defend her three-point title, having won the competition in 2017 and 2018. Las Vegas guard Kayla McBride is looking for revenge after falling to Quigley in a final-round tiebreaker a year ago.
Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner headlines the Skills Challenge field. This is the first time since 2010 the event was rolled into the WNBA's All-Star festivities.
Quigley will be the heavy favorite to make it three years in a row. She's hitting 47.7 percent of her three-pointers through 19 games, the second-best rate in the WNBA.
Aside from McBride, Erica Wheeler might be best positioned to play the role of spoiler. The Indiana Fever guard is enjoying a career year, which extends to her shooting. Wheeler is connecting on 42.7 percent of her long-range opportunities, having never finished a season shooting better than 33.1 percent from beyond the arc.
Much like the NBA's Skills Challenge, the WNBA's version included a nice mix of frontcourt and backcourt players. Connecticut Sun center Jonquel Jones and Atlanta Dream center Elizabeth Williams join Griner as the bigs taking part.
The Skills Challenge includes a three-point component, though, which will put the trio at a clear disadvantage. Griner in particular could be in trouble, having gone 1-of-4 from the perimeter over her WNBA career. In the event Griner does struggle, she'll likely hear about it from teammate Diana Taurasi.
The WNBA's All-Star Friday Night will begin at 7 p.m. ET.
