In the final event of the 2016 HockomockSports.com Charity Basketball Classic, North Attleboro junior Brent Doherty was the last man standing in the annual Three Point Contest.
Doherty reached the finals when he sank 16 of his 25 shots in the opening round. Foxboro’s Alex DuBrow connected on a round-high 17 three pointers in the opening round to secure his spot in the final. DuBrow and Doherty squared off head to head, shooting at the same time on opposite ends of the court. Doherty hit on 15 threes and DuBrow sank his final corner three to tie him at 15.
In an overtime round (30 seconds), Doherty took home the hardware by hitting eight three pointers. Both Doherty and DuBrow broke the record for most threes made in a final round, edging out Ryan Boulter’s record of 14 in 2015.
Doherty now holds the record for most threes made in one event with 39, eclipsing Boulter’s record of 34 set last year. The North Attleboro guard now also has the record for most threes made in the event for a career with 50 after hitting 11 in 2015. Taunton junior Tommy MacLean jumped into third all time in threes made in the event with 37.
