2014 Reese's Division I All-Star Game will be played at AT&T Stadium on Friday at 4:30 p.m. and is free to the public. The game is played as part of events during Final Four Friday, including practices by all four of the teams playing in the semifinals on Saturday.
After leading the Red Raiders in scoring for the second straight season, Crockett earned Third Team All-Big 12 honors from the league coaches, while notching Fourth Team honors from CollegeSportsMadness.com and honorable mention from the Associated Press. He was a USBWA First Team All-District selection and a First Team Academic All-Big 12 selection. Crockett was also a Dr. Gerald Lage Award recipient, the highest academic honor in the Big 12.
This past season, Crockett averaged 13.9 points per game, while pulling down 6.4 rebounds. He also added 1.2 assists and 1.0 steals per game, while shooting a league-best 51.7 percent from the field.
