>>>full team [word]

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Senior guard Shaun Keaton (Albany, Ga.) of the Georgia College & State University men's basketball team can't quite call it a college career yet. The dead-eye three-point marksman was chosen to the West version of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC)/NCAA Division II Basketball All-Star Team.

The NABC chooses two teams-one in the east and one in the west-comprised of the top 10 players that aren't playing in the Division II Elite Eight. The all-star contest will be played Friday, March 27 at 7 p.m. at the NCAA Tournament in Springfield, Mass.

Keaton wraps up a stellar senior season, getting 20-plus points in his last seven games. He finished his career as the top three-point shooter in school history, and the sixth-best scorer in the school record-books.

Keaton is the second Bobcat chosen to this all-star program in its four years of existence, as Jeremy Mayweather earned a spot on the first team in 2006.
