The National Association of Basketball Coaches today announced rosters for the 2014 Reese’s Division III College All-Star game, which will be played as part of the D-III Final Four. Reese’s is the official candy partner of the NCAA. 

The Reese’s Division III College All-Star game will be played on Saturday, March 22, at 3 p.m. ET, prior to the NCAA Division III championship game, which begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Va. The teams are composed of two senior student-athletes from each of the eight regions in Division III and two seniors have been selected by online voting on D3hoops.com

The game will feature a pair of outstanding former coaches who have both been recipients of the NABC Division III Distinguished Service Award. Springfield College coach Charlie Brock will lead the East team, while former Bridgewater College coach Bill Leatherman will guide the West team.
