Halftime of the Derby Festival Basketball Classic is always an entertaining one. It is when they have the finals of the dunk contest and 3-point contest. At the Night of the Future Stars on the night before, they have the early rounds of those contests and then that sets up the finals for Friday night.

Tonight’s competitions both include future Louisville Cardinals. In the dunk contest, Jaylen Johnson will face off against Isaac Copeland (Georgetown) and Devin Robinson (Florida).

Quentin Snider will be in the finals of the 3-point competition. He will square off against Robert Johnson (Indiana), Max Hoetzel (Indiana) and Brandone Francis (Florida).
