Michael Roll Named to Reese's College All-Star Game

March 26, 2010

LOS ANGELES - UCLA senior Michael Roll has been selected to play in the Reese's College All-Star Game as part of Final Four weekend in Indianapolis. He is one of 20 seniors selected to play in the event, which tips off at 4:35 p.m. (EDT)/1:35 p.m. (PDT) on Friday, April 2, at Lucas Oil Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on CBS College Sports.

"It is an honor to be named to the all-star team and I look forward to representing UCLA," Roll said. "It shows that my individual hard work has paid off. But I wouldn't be where I am today without my coaches and teammates motivating me to improve, and I thank them for helping me in my preparation."

Roll will play on the Reese's All-Star team, which will be wearing the orange uniforms. He will be coached by former Purdue head coach Gene Keady. Former Indiana State head coach Bill Hodges, who led the Sycamores and Larry Bird to the 1979 NCAA Championship game, is the coach of the Hershey's All-Star team (dark uniforms).

"It is a very well-deserved honor and Michael [Roll] represents the ideals of what it is to be a student-athlete," UCLA Head Coach Ben Howland said. "I am very proud of him and happy for him."

Roll led the Bruins with a 14.1 scoring average, ranking 11th in the Pac-10 in 2009-10. He also ranked second in the league in assist/turnover ratio (1.89), third in three-pointers made per game (2.5), fourth in three-point field goal percentage (.426, 80-188) and sixth in assists (3.6 apg).

Roll's All-Star teammates will be Robert Glenn (F, IUPUI), Tre'von Hughes (G, Wisconsin), Jerome Randle (G, California), Adam Koch (F, Northern Iowa), Omar Samhan (C, St. Mary's), Aubrey Coleman (G, Houston), Bryan Davis (F, Texas A&M), Tyren Johnson (F, Louisiana Lafayette) and Quincy Pondexter (F, Washington).
