University of Delaware women’s basketball senior Lauren Carra has been selected to participate in the State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships later this week.

Carra will compete in the State Farm Women’s 3-Point Championship. Other individual events to be held include the Hampton Hotels Men’s 3-Point Championship, Pepsi MAX Battle of the Champions, and Denny’s Slam Dunk Championship.  The events will all be broadcast on ESPN.

A guard for the Blue Hens, Carra was a major part of Delaware’s historic season, which included a 32-4 record, the Colonial Athletic Association title, a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and the school’s first-ever trip to the Sweet 16.
