Kilgore is one of eight men’s college basketball players selected for the event that will air live on ESPN2 at 8 p.m. CT. Kilgore finished the season as the third leading scorer in the Southland Conference, averaging 18.3 points per game, which earned him Second Team All-SLC Honors. Kilgore turned heads after recording a monster dunk against New Orleans, the senior captain made SportsCenter Top 10 plays at the number five spot. It’s fitting for the Islander to be in the national spotlight as he is no stranger to putting his name in the Corpus Christi record book. He recorded the schools first ever triple-double (24 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists) against Houston Baptist and scored a career-high 36 points against Houston Baptist in his regular season finale as an Islander. This season Kilgore even reached the 1,000 point club after scoring 11 points against UIW.Fun afternoon at work. @IslandersMBB @joe_soslow pic.twitter.com/HLnXvUkMyl— Quinton Martinez (@qmartinez) March 20, 2018 Intersport, producers of the event, invites 24 of the nation’s elite men’s and women’s college basketball players to compete in the State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships (eight dunkers, along with eight men’s and eight women’s shooters).
