NEW ORLEANS – St. Bonaventure senior Jessica Jenkins had her career in the Brown and White come to a close Thursday night in the semifinal round of the State Farm 3-Point Championship.
After tallying 15 points in the opening round, the Ohio native scored just 12 in the semifinals to finish three points shy of advancing to the final. USC's Ashley Corral won the women's competition, while Northwestern's John Shurna claimed the overall title with a 24 in the championship round against Corral.
Jenkins entered the event as the nation's active leader in career 3-pointers made with 338, but struggled to get going in the semifinal as she knocked down just one of the five bonus balls which were worth two points each.
The women's 3-point shootout began in 1992, and just one previous Bonaventure player had participated – Suzie Dailer in 1995 – and she won the championship.
