FM Marcus' Forte wins national 3-point contest

Flower Mound Marcus sharpshooter Phil Forte won the U.S. Marines Boys’ 3-Point Championship, a national contest held over the weekend in Chicago.

The contest won by Forte was part of the American Family Insurance High School Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships, an event for high school seniors which will be broadcast at 3:30 p.m. CT Sunday on CBS.

Forte, an Oklahoma State recruit, was the MVP of the 2012 Class 5A state championship game last month, when Marcus beat Fort Bend Travis.

Marcus, by the way, finished at No. 5 in the final ESPNHS Powerade FAB 50 of the season.
