Basketball: Durand Scott Will Play In Senior All-Star Game


***ACC Release***

ATLANTA - Miami guard Durand Scott is one of 22 seniors selected by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) to play in the 2013 Reese’s Division I College All-Star game.

Scott, who is a member of the West All-Star roster, will take the floor on Friday, April 5, at 5 p.m. (EDT), at the Georgia Dome, the site of this week’s championship games as the NCAA celebrates 75 years of March Madness.  The teams are composed of 11 senior student-athletes from NCAA Division I programs across America.

The Bronx, N.Y., native was a standout for the Hurricanes during their record-setting season.  Scott, who was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year, averaged 13.1 ppg for the Canes, while grabbing 4.0 rebounds per game, dishing out 86 assists and collecting 51 steals over 33 games.  The senior leader helped Miami win the regular season championship and the ACC tournament on their way to a berth to the Sweet 16 in this year’s NCAA tournament.

The Reese’s All-Star game will feature a pair of outstanding coaches who played in the 1995 All-Star game.  Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg will coach the West All-Stars and Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin will coach the East All-Stars.
