WACONIA – Perham’s Mya Morris won the Nickle Dickle 3-point Shootout on Saturday among some of the states top girls basketball players.

Morris scored 16 in the first round and 17 in the second round to beat Kristi Kotte, who scored 12, to win the event.

The 3-point shootout is part of Waconia’s Nickle Dickle day, a town festival with a 3-on-3 basketball event, 3-point contests and dunk contests. Past competitors include The University of Connecticut's Paige Bueckers, The University of North Carolina’s Taylor Koenen and Creighton’s Lauren Jensen.

Each player takes five shots from five different spots. The fifth shot in each round is worth two points.
