YORK, PA – For the second year in a row, the Spartan men's basketball team will have a representative at the Reese's NABC Division III Senior All-Star game as guard Jason Bady has been selected to play in the game this weekend.
The game will be played as a part of the 2019 NCAA Division III Men's Basketball Championship weekend in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The game will be played on Saturday at 4:30 pm prior to the Division III National Championship game which tips off at 7:00 pm at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.
The teams are composed of two senior players from each of the eight Division III regions, a pair of at-large selections and two more seniors who were selected by on-line voting on D3hoops.com.
Bady will play for Team Schlosser as long time Elizabethtown head coach Bob Schlosser will lead the team. Schlosser led the Elizabethtown program for 27 years before retiring following the 2016-17 season.
The honors continue to come in for the Spartan senior as Bady was named the 2019 Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Year in addition to being a first team selection. It is the second straight year that York will have a representative at the game. Last year, Dalton Myers earned a trip to the game after winning the fan vote.
Spartan head coach Matt Hunter was happy to senior his senior standout recognized.
"Obviously, Jason had a tremendous season," said Hunter. "He deserves all the honors he has received and he will have a great time playing in the game. It's a great credit to our program and his teammates for Jason to get this opportunity to play in the senior all-star game. It's been pretty awesome to have two players earn a spot in the game in the last two years and reflects the success we have achieved on the floor."
Bady finished the year averaging 18.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocked shots per game. He shot 53.2% from the floor, 33.8% from three and 79.9% from the free throw line. He led the CAC in points per game, was third in rebounding, first in free throws made per game, fifth in blocks per game, fifth in free throw percentage, eighth in field goal percentage, and tenth in assists per game.
The game will be broadcast live on the D3Hoops.com on Saturday afternoon.
