Texas A&M didn’t fulfill it’s goal of making the Final Four, but Danuel House, still has a chance to bring home some hardware.

The 6-foot-7 guard is one of eight participants in tonight’s 3-point competition as part of the 2016 State Farm Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships. The event is being held at the Berry Center in Cypress, Texas, and will be televised on ESPN (8 p.m.)

House was only a 30.9 percent shooter from beyond the arc this season although his 243 attempts were more than 100 more than any other A&M player took and accounted for nearly 30 percent of the Aggies’ total 3-point attempts.

The competition House will face includes some of the biggest names in college hoops: Yogi Ferrell, Indiana; Bryn Forbes, Michigan State; Melvin Johnson, VCU; Max Landis, IPFW; Damion Lee, Louisville; Adam Smith, Georgia Tech; and Denzel Valentine, Michigan State.
