BELLINGHAM, Wash. — The 2014 Reese’s Division II College Men’s Basketball All-Star Game with Western Washington University center Austin Bragg among the participants will be streamed live at www.WPSRHD.com on Friday at 4 p.m. PDT from the Ford Center in Evansville, Ind.

Bragg becomes the third WWU player to compete in the contest. The others were Ryan Diggs in 2006 and Ira Graham in 2009. Diggs was the game’s co-MVP.
Bragg, a senior from Longview, was named a first-team National Association of Basketball Coaches DII West District all-star. He also was picked to the Daktronics West Region second team and the Great Northwest Athletic Conference first team.
The 6-foot-9 Bragg averaged 17.3 points on 58.7 percent (178-of-303) field-goal shooting and 8.8 rebounds, and blocked 49 shots for the Vikings, all team-leading figures. Those numbers all ranked among the top five in the GNAC.

Bragg had just the second triple-double in school history and only the third in GNAC history on Feb. 1 in a 99-76 victory over Alaska Anchorage, finishing with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.
Bragg topped the GNAC in double-doubles with 11 and scored double-figure points in 26 games. He twice earned GNAC Player of the Week honors.
Bragg scored a career-high 32 points in a 94-91 triumph over Central Washington on Feb. 22, and had 30 points and a career-high 17 rebounds against Simon Fraser in an 82-69 victory on Jan. 11.

Last season, Bragg helped WWU to a school-record tying 31 wins, a West Regional title and the national semifinals.
