March 30, 2010
INDIANAPOLIS, IN-- Old Dominion's Gerald Lee will be one of the 20 top senior Division I basketball players invited to play in the Reese's College All-Star Game Friday in the Lucas Oil Stadium. The game is scheduled for April 2 at 4:30 pm. Will be televised by CBS College Sports.
Legendary former Purdue coach Gene Keady will coach team Reese's while Bill Hodges, who led Larry Bird and the Indiana State Sycamores to the 1979 NCAA Championship game, will coach Team Hershey's.
Lee was named first team All-District 10 along with Chaisson Allen of Northeastern, Charles Jenkins of Hofstra, Cam Long of George Mason and Larry Sanders of VCU.
The 6-10 Lee helped lead the Monarchs to a 27-9 record which included the CAA regular season and Tournament Championship. ODU advanced to the NCAA tournament as a number 11 seed and knocked off sixth seeded Notre Dame, before losing to Baylor in the next round. The 27 wins is the second most in school history.
Lee completed his career with 1,624 points which ranked him 11th all-time at ODU. He was 22 points shy of Alex Loughton ('06) who ranks 10th and one point better than Kenny Gattison ('86). Lee also played an ODU best 137 games breaking the mark of 135 set last year by Jonathan Adams. Lee joined fellow teammates Ben Finney, Frank Hassell, Kent Bazemore, Keyon Carter, Darius James and Trian Iliadis as owners of a new school record of 36 games played in a single season.
Lee will also play in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament next week.

About the National Association of Basketball Coaches Located in Kansas City, MO, the NABC was founded in 1927 by Phog Allen, the legendary basketball coach at the University of Kansas. Allen, a student of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, organized coaches into this collective group to serve as Guardians of the Game. The NABC currently claims nearly 5,000 members consisting primarily of university and college men's basketball coaches. All members of the NABC are expected to uphold the core values of being a Guardian of the Game by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today's student-athletes. The four core values of being a Guardian of the Game are advocacy, leadership, service and education. Additional information about the NABC, its programs and membership, can be found at www.nabc.com.
