Arkansas guard Chelsea Dungee (33) is shown during a game against Missouri on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021, in Fayetteville.

Arkansas guard Chelsea Dungee has been selected to compete in the Women’s Three-Point Championship roster for the 32nd annual College Slam Dunk and Three-Point Championships.

The event will take place at Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis at 8 p.m. Central Thursday on ESPN2.

Dungee, a third-team Associated Press All-American and All-SEC first-team selection, shot a career-best 38.7% from three-point range this season for the Razorbacks, who earned the No. 4 seed in the Alamo Regional in the NCAA Women’s Tournament.

Arkansas lost 66-62 to Wright State in the first round of the tournament last Monday.

The three-point contest includes eight men and eight women’s players. The full roster was not announced Monday.

Dungee, who has declared for the WNBA Draft, will be the first Arkansas player to compete in the three-point contest since Wendi Willits in 2001.
