SPRINGFIELD, Mass.- As part of the NCAA Division II Championship Weekend, Georgia College & State University senior guard Shaun Keaton (Albany, Ga.) was chosen to the fourth annual National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division II All-Star Game.

March 27, on the main court at the Basketball Hall of Fame, Keaton played for the West Team aiding them to a 138-117 win. He tallied 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting, including 2-for-7 from behind the three-point line.
