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, 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, earning one for having 20 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks in a 72-69 win over nationally No.1-ranked Metro State on Nov. 30.
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. His two-year career totals were 791 points on 56.5 percent (297-of-526) floor accuracy, 494 rebounds and 92 blocks. Bragg, a graduate of Mark Morris High School, transferred to WWU from Clark CC.
WWU finished 20-8 overall this winter, placed second in the GNAC regular-season standings at 13-5, and reached the championship game of the GNAC Tournament. Upsets in two other conference tournaments kept the Vikings from making a third straight trip to regionals.
