Roll selected to participate in All-Star game
By Blair Angulo
UCLA will be represented in the Final Four festivities after all -- just not how Bruins fans envisioned a few years ago.
Senior guard Michael Roll, UCLA's steadiest players this past season, will be in Indianapolis after being selected to play in the Reese's College All-Star Game on April 2.
"It is an honor to be named to the all-star team and I look forward to representing UCLA," Roll said in a statement released by the school. "It shows that my individual hard work has paid off. But I wouldn't be where I am today without my coaches and teammates motivating me to improve, and I thank them for helping me in my preparation."
Said coach Ben Howland: "It is a very well-deserved honor and Michael represents the ideals of what it is to be a student-athlete. I am very proud of him and happy for him."
