Adams To Play In NABC Senior All-Star Game

St. Bonaventure senior guard Jaylen Adams will play in the National Association of Basketball Coaches Reese's All-Star game this Friday, March 30, in San Antonio, Texas.

The contest, which is for invited seniors who have completed their college eligibility, will be played at the Alamo Dome, which is also the venue for this weekend's Final Four. The game will tipoff at 4:30 p.m. Eastern and will air on CBS Sports Network.

Adams is one of 11 players on the East All-Stars roster along with his fellow Atlantic 10 Conference Co-Player of the Year, Davidson forward Peyton Aldridge. Their teammates are Vladimir Brodziansky (TCU), Jevon Carter (West Virginia), Xavier Cooks (Winthrop), Gabe DeVoe (Clemson), Marcus Foster (Creighton), Jordan Howard (Central Arkansas), George King (Colorado), Zach Thomas (Bucknell) and Thomas Welsh (UCLA). Yale head coach James Jones will serve as the East coach.

The West All-Stars roster is Jordan McLaughlin (USC), Trae Bell-Haynes (Vermont), Bogdan Bliznyuk (Eastern Washington), Tyler Nelson (Fairfield), Desi Rodriguez (Seton Hall), Hayden Dalton (Wyoming). Yante Maten (Georgia), Gabe Levin (Long Beach State), Ben Lammers (Georgia Tech), Rokas Gustys (Hofstra) and Keenan Evans (Texas Tech).

Adams, who earned All-District honors from the NABC the past two seasons, was the fourth-leading scorer in the Atlantic 10 this season at 19.1 points per game. The Baltimore, Md., native also ranked third in the A-10 in assists (5.2 per game) and in three-point field goal percentage (.436). Adams' season included two games of 40-plus points with 40 at Duquesne and a career high 44 against Saint Louis, a game in which he set a school record with 10 three-pointers.

He led St. Bonaventure to an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament, where the Bonnies topped UCLA for the program's first NCAA win since 1970. St. Bonaventure ended the season 26-8, setting a school record for wins.

Over his career, Adams was a three-time First Team All-Atlantic 10 selection. He is the top scoring guard in school history with 1,912 points.
