It was an easy decision at this point for Quigley. She was going to suit up and attempt to win her record breaking fourth three-point contest, and well, she did just that.

Participants in this years WNBA three-point contest came out of the gates on fire. Washington Mystics guard Ariel Atkins and Atlanta Dream rookie Rhyne Howard posted scores of 24, enough to push them into a tie for second. Quigley was the last participant in the first round and scored a round-high 26 points. Quigley was the only participant to hit the MTN Dew three-point shot in the first round.

Final Round

As Ariel Atkins stepped to the rack for the championship round of the 2022 WNBA three-point contest she had one thing on her mind, stop Quigley from winning again. Atkins was exceptional in her final round, posting a score of 21. It was a valiant effort, but no one on earth was stopping Quigley this year. Quigley hit both her four-point MTN Dew balls, and finished the night with a perfect 5-5 final rack. She posted a contest high 30 points to secure a record 4th three-point contest title. In Candace Parker's own words "They should rename it the Allie Quigley competition."
