Burlington’s Brady Heslip closes out career by claiming 2014 NCAA 3-point championship

The Baylor Bears put together a late season run in the Big 12 ending with a tough loss to No. 2 Wisconsin Badgers in the Sweet 16.

The defeat meant the end of the collegiate career for the Canadian sharpshooter Brady Heslip who originally committed to Guelph Gryphons of the CIS/U Sports only to end up at Boston College and transferring to Baylor for three-seasons.

Before saying goodbye to the collegiate game, Heslip was rewarded with an invitation to the NCAA official 3-point shootout contest. The Canadian claimed the Nation’s top sharpshooter title, showing his composure and flawless stroke against the countries top snipers.

With his Head Coach Scott Drew on hand, the Burlington, Ontario guard but on a shooting exhibition, nailing 19 points in the two early rounds to advance to the championship around.

Heslip started slow by only knocking down one ball in the first rack of the final round, but quietly found his rhythm from the top of the key and went 9-of-10 to survive Travis Bader from the Oakland Golden Grizzlies. Bader struggled in the final round after stroking the ball the first two rounds with 23 points each.
