Kewanee senior guard Dayton Ince will get his shot at becoming statewide royalty after winning the Class 2A state competition of the Country Financial Three-Point Showdown. Ince will return to the Peoria Civic Center on Saturday at about 1:45 p.m. for the "King of the Hill'' finals between all four class winners.

Ince needed to prevail in a shootout to advance from Thursday evening's 2A preliminaries to Friday's final round. He hit nine 3s, and then eight more in the extra round to beat Monmouth-Roseville's Martel Hunter and Aurora Christian's Ryan McQuade. Ince left no doubt in the finals, with his 11 treys three more than his closest competitor.

Ince was the only area shooter in either 2A or 1A to advance to his class's Final Four. The other 2A competitors besides Ince and Hunter-- Orion's Jason Marshall (seven 3s) and Fulton's Matt Dail (six) -- were eliminated in the prelims.

In 1A, Erie's Jacob Johnston bagged 10 treys, but his five 3-balls in a subsequent three-way shootout weren't enough to reach the final round. Prophetstown's Ethan Howard and Wethersfield's Trevor Lay each hit nine 3s to fall just short of the shootout round, and ROWVA's Sam Rammage hit just four of 15 attempts.

No local competitors advanced to next weekend's 3A/4A state finals from Friday night's sectional round.
