Cory Joseph wins McDonald’s All-American three-point contest

Published

Findlay Prep guard Cory Joseph got his week as a McDonald’s All-American off to a smashing start Monday in Columbus, Ohio.

After, according to several sources, he impressed those in attendance on the defensive end during an afternoon practice session, Joseph won the boys’ 3-point competition Monday night, which was shown on ESPN.

Joseph, who Rivals.com ranks as the No. 7 recruit in the 2010 class, scored 20 points during the opening round to get into the finals, then was forced into an extra round following the finals, tied with North Carolina signee Reggie Bullock. Each scored 16 in his first attempt in the finals.

Then, Joseph caught fire.

He scored the majority of his points on the middle three racks, finishing with a competition-high 22 points.

It was the second consecutive year in which a Findlay product won an event during the skills competition portion of the week at the McDonald’s All-American location.

Avery Bradley, who just finished his freshman season at Texas, won the slam dunk competition last year.

Coincidentally, Texas is one of the five schools on Joseph’s final list of collegiate destinations, and the Toronto native is expected to make a decision soon after Findlay completes its run at the ESPN Rise National High School Invitational.

The other four schools on his list are — in no particular order — Minnesota, Villanova, UConn and UNLV.

Joseph, along with fellow Pilot and McDonald’s honoree Tristan Thompson, will head off to join the rest of the team in Baltimore for the ESPN tourney after taking part in Wednesday’s McDonald’s game.
