Quigley (class of 2008) joined WNBA legend Tamika Catchings, Paul, Zach Lavine, Paul Pierce, Chauncey Billups, Trae Young and Mike Conley in the tournament, broadcasted remotely from each player's home. From then on, Billups' variety of 3-pointers - two of them bankers from the top of the key, one of them off one leg and the last from the corner out of bounds - proved too much for Young to match.

For a split second, as the pixelated squares fell into place to form an actual picture, fans watching ESPN'S H-O-R-S-E tournament could tell that former NBA great Paul Pierce's personal basketball court in the hills of Los Angeles donned a giant Boston Celtics logo.

Allie Quigley is a three-time WNBA star who takes down three-point shots easily. In addition to pure shot-making from the perimeter, the two-time WNBA 3-Point Contest victor showed off more classic HORSE tricks than anybody else involved in the competition, including a bank shot from the ground that drew one of Paul's letters.

Quigley won the matchup off of a bank-in free throw, advancing to the next round which is set to air on Thursday on ESPN. Big Shot hung five straight letters on Young, sealing it with an underhanded free throw. At least she said it was her first try.
