Former Wildcat and current Miami Heat forward Bam Adebayo will head back to Miami with some hardware.

Saturday night Adebayo won the 2020 NBA Skills Challenge after defeating Spencer Dinwiddie (Nets) Pascal Siakam (Raptors) and Domantas Sabonis (Pacers) head to head.

Fellow Kentucky Wildcat Shai Gilgeous-Alexander also participated in the event but was eliminated in the first round by Bucks sharpshooter Khris Middleton.

With the victory, Adebayo joins Karl-Anthony Towns (2016) as the only other Wildcat to win the Skills Challenge. He is also just the second player in Heat history to win the challenge joining Dwayne Wade (2006 & 2007).

Adebayo will be back on the floor Sunday night during the 2020 NBA All-Star Game.
