On East Roster Being Coach By Doug Collins
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The National Association of Basketball Coaches has announced the rosters for the 2016 Reese's Division I College All-Star game, and Yale's Justin Sears will play for the East squad, which will be coached by former Chicago Bulls coach and current ESPN NBA analyst Doug Collins.
The game, part of the Reese's Final Four Friday festivities, will be played on Friday at 4:30 p.m. CDT at NRG Stadium in Houston. A tape delayed broadcast will air on CBS on Saturday at 1 p.m. EDT.
The teams are composed of 10 senior student-athletes from NCAA Division I.
Sears, a two-time Ivy League Player of the Year who will wear his familiar No. 22 in the all-star game, will graduate Yale third in school history with 1,700 career points, fourth with 814 rebounds and second with 200 blocked shots.
Sears is the first two-time Ivy Player of the Year in school history and the first back-to-back winner in the league since Penn's Ibrahim Jaaber in 2006 and 2007. In addition, he was named first team All-Ivy for the third straight season, Yale's first three-time selection since Chris Dudley (1985-87).
