E Competition Comes To A Close, Winner Revealed

Quigley was the only woman to reach the semi-finals, which will be played Thursday.

Conley (H-O) reached the final by beating former National Basketball Association star Chauncey Billups, while LaVine (H-O-R) ousted WNBA star Allie Quigley of the Chicago Sky. The NBA format followed the traditional rules of the game. If they miss, they receive a letter, starting with H. Players can be as creative as they like, shooting from anywhere in and around the court, and even from seated positions. A player shot can not include dunking.

"It was fun. It comes down to making shots and he made some really, really, really tough shots". If the other player can not make the original shot, he/she receive a letter. Normally, both players would play on the same court but for safety, these players played on separate isolated home courts. This was thanks to an wonderful behind the backboard layup, which earned the 32-year-old the honor of being the first-ever H-O-R-S-E champ.

After the first round of the HORSE tournament on ESPN flopped a bit both from an entertainment perspective and from a numbers perspective, Zach LaVine and Mike Conley were able to put on a bit of a show in the finals on Thursday evening, as Conley claimed the title with a hard over-the-backboard shot to close out LaVine.

"If I could do it over, I would be all right-handed, honestly, and I would never have touched the ball left-handed", Conley said.

LaVine defeated Pierce and thee-time WNBA All-Star Quigley. LaVine's opponents had a hard time matching his all-net layups.

The first round of HORSE was missing those types of shots (weird little tricks that would never be attempted in a real game), so seeing more of them this time around was good.

Paul and Young were the favorite coming into the challenge but both lost in the first round. Conley coming into the challenge was fourth behind those two players and the guy he beat LaVine.

Conley had advantages - he was at an indoor gym, the only remaining player who was. It might have factored into winning.
