Given the history of shooters Mike Brey has recruited to South Bend, it’s not all that surprising that Nate Laszewski won the eighth annual U.S. Marine’s Men’s 3-Point Championship from Wagner High in San Antonio.
Laszewski defeated future Villanova player Cole Swider (St. Andrew’s) in the final, then went on to defeat women’s champion Taylor Mikesell 23-20.
A 6-10 forward from Mount Herman (Northfield, Mass.), Laszewski is the 66th-ranked player in the country according to 247Sports.
Aside from Swider, Lazewski defeated Aaron Wiggins (Wesleyan Christian), A.J. Reeves (Brimmer and May), Casey Tuttle (Williamsville), Foster Loyer (Clarkston), Myles Dread (Gonzaga College), and Cormac Ryan (Milton Academy).
