Charlotte, N.C. – Raycom Sports and the Atlantic Coast Conference announced the launch of a new basketball gaming app, ACC 3 Point Challenge. The free app, which is now available for download through the Apple and Google Play app stores, will allow fans to compete in several basketball shooting challenges.
Fans will be able to play as their favorite ACC school and take their best shot in three point shootout style competitions. Additionally, users can play quick matches or try to survive and advance through the ACC Tournament. Other features include the ability to send/accept challenges and share scores on social media, all the while keeping unlocking achievements and climbing leaderboards.
This is the third ACC gaming app released by Raycom Sports, following the success of the ACC Football Challenge and ACC Quarterback Challenge presented by KIOTI. ACC 3 Point Challenge was developed in a partnership with RE Creative.
"Building on our success with football gaming, we're thrilled to expand into college basketball with ACC 3 Point Challenge,” said Trey Walters, Senior Director, Mobile Content and Business Development for Raycom Sports. “This platform should provide fans a great second screen engagement option throughout March Madness.”
“We’re very excited to continue our partnership with Raycom Sports and the ACC by developing the first ever ACC Basketball game for iOS and Android,” added Ryan Eade, Founder of RE Creative.
