National Basketball Association and WNBA players go head-to-head in Horse Challenge

With both the WNBA and the National Basketball Association (NBA) suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, the leagues, along with ESPN, have turned to alternative competitions to entertain fans.

And her shooting prowess was on full display Sunday night when she beat 10 time NBA all-star Chris Paul in the first round of the NBA Horse Tournament on ESPN. The idea of the challenge involves matching baskets, and the player who makes shots that their opponent does not replicate, wins.

Former DePaul women's star Allie Quigley has made her name as one of the best shooters in the WNBA as a member of the Chicago Sky. The first player in each game to accumulate the letters "H-O-R-S-E" after failing to match five shots is eliminated. They are trailed by Conley (3/1), Pierce (4/1), LaVine (5/1), Billups (6/1), Quigley (8/1) and Catchings (10/1).

She sealed the win with a banked free throw and Paul missed his equalising attempt at his home in Encino, California. "The Truth" will take on Chicago Bulls guard and former Slam Dunk champion Zach LaVine in the first round.

Thunder guard Chris Paul, Hawks guard Trae Young and six more current and former National Basketball Association and WNBA players will compete in a H-O-R-S-E Tournament that tips-off at 6 p.m. on ESPN.

Finally, LaVine went off the court and fired in the game-winner from the dirt outside his halfcourt, forcing Pierce to try something similar from the grass, which he was unable to do.

On her matchup with LaVine, Quigley said: "I'm excited". I gave it 5 min.
