Dawkins, Turgeon named All-Star Game coaches

DALLAS -- The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced on Tuesday Stanford’s Johnny Dawkins and Maryland's Mark Turgeon as the head coaches for the 2014 Reese’s Division I College All-Star game. The game will be played as part of Final Four Friday on April 4 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, at 5:30 p.m. ET. Reese’s is the official candy partner of the NCAA.

Dawkins, in his sixth year at Stanford, will coach the West All-Stars. He led the Cardinal to the third round of the NCAA tournament this season with a 23-13 record, which included a second-round upset of Kansas. Dawkins is a member of the NABC board of directors and the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Ethics Coalition. Named one of the 50 greatest players in the history of the Atlantic Coast Conference, Dawkins was a two-time consensus All-America at Duke and the winner of the 1986 Naismith Trophy.  He was an assistant coach for Mike Krzyzewski for 11 seasons at Duke.

Turgeon, who just completed his fourth season at Maryland, will coach the East All-Stars. He will lead The Terrapins’ transition from the ACC to the Big Ten in 2014-15. Prior to moving to Maryland, the two-time Big 12 coach of the year led Texas A&M to four consecutive NCAA tournaments. In seven years as head coach at Wichita State, he guided the Shockers to the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2006. A point guard for coach Larry Brown at Kansas, Turgeon was the first player in Jayhawks’ history to play in four consecutive NCAA tournaments.
