Sheehey to Play in Reese’s Division I College All-Star Game

Indiana University graduating senior Will Sheehey (Stuart, Fla./Sagemont) will represent the Cream and Crimson one last time as a member of the East Squad at the Reese’s Division I College All-Star Game Friday in Dallas as part of the Final Four Festivities.  The game will be played at AT&T Stadium at 4:30 p.m. and will air on CBS at Noon the following day.  Rosters were announced today by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Sheehey, a four-year letterwinner, finished his career 37th on the school’s all-time scoring list with 1,120 points.  This past season he was an honorable mention All-Big Ten pick after averaging 11.4 points and 4.0 rebounds.  He was the 2013 Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year.

“It’s always an honor to represent Indiana University,” said Sheehey.  “I’m excited to get a chance to play one more time on such a big stage with some outstanding players and I appreciate the NABC for the opportunity.”

The game has been played since 1963 and Sheehey is the 13th Hoosier to participate in the event.  Other former Hoosier standouts who played in the game include Jimmy Rayl (1963), Tom Van Arsdale (1965), Joby Wright (1972), Steve Green and John Laskowski (1975), Scott May and Quinn Buckner (1976), Wayne Radford (1978), Mike Woodson (1980), Randy Wittman (1983), Greg Graham (1993), Marco Killingsworth (2006).

  1. Awesome…if Sheehey plays well there is still an outside chance that he may get selected in the NBA draft.

    Knock’em dead kid!

  2. Higgi – he could score 73 in that game and it wouldn’t move his draft stock a tick… Now what would move the needle is a great combine followed by amazing individual and group workouts.

  3. Sheehey played great in the Reese’s All-star game, he’s got a shot to be drafted this May. Perhaps to Brad Stevens and the Boston Celtics in Round 2?!
