Micala Fisanick came into Wednesday’s Alabama All-Star Sports Week basketball competition hoping to showcase her shooting ability in the Auburn University Montgomery Physical Education Complex.

The Saint James senior-to-be came off the bench to open the second quarter and nailed the first 3-pointer she took, but didn’t make another basket the remainder of the game. Her next shot, a 15-footer from the left side of the court, was followed by a pair of 3-point misses as shots, in addition to playing time, was in short supply.
