Would Allen Crabbe or C.J. Wilcox win a three point shooting contest in the Pac-12? Would Shabazz Muhammad or Jahii Carson in a Pac-12 slam dunk contest?
So if the Pac-12 had an all-star skills competition, who do you think would win the dunk contest and who would win the 3-point competition?
Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: I'm sure there is some sneaky guy in the conference that I'm not thinking of that can seriously throw down, but I will go with the predictable answer of Shabazz Muhammad. I will go with Jarred DuBois for the three-point competition, not just because he shoots a very high percentage, but because he also has the kind of confidence it takes to win those kinds of competitions.
NorcalNick, California Golden Blogs: My heart wants to say Allen Crabbe, and he certainly has the stroke to win it if he's hot. But I think I'd go with Ahmad Starks. Although what would probably happen? C.J. Wilcox would struggle in the first round, but hit juuust enough to advance, then go absolutely nuts in the final round.
As for the dunk contest? I wish Jared Cunningham was still around, he seemed built for this type of thing. Shabazz is a safe choice, but how about Jahii Carson? The crowd always goes nuts for the shorter guys who can throw down - think Nate Robinson.
Matt Takimoto, Addicted to Quack: Oregon's Carlos Emory would destroy a dunk contest. And I've got to take the hot hand right now in Cal's Allen Crabbe to win a three-point contest.
Anthony Cassino, UW Dawg Pound: If recent history has taught us anything, it's that the winner of the dunk contest would be a Husky. I don't know which one, but UW players just win these things.
Adam Butler, Pac Hoops: I'm taking Jahii Carson in a dunk contest. Tell me I'm wrong. Being 5'10" with spring generally behooves ones ability to win such competitions. I'll also give shout outs to Nick Johnson, Andre Roberson, and Norman Powell. From distance? I'm looking at a nice little competition between CJ Wilcox and Allen Crabbe with the latter pulling away for the win.
