Haidar Scores 13 Points in All-Star Game

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Michigan Tech men's basketball player Ali Haidar scored 13 points and grabbed six rebounds in the 2013 Reese's Division II College All-Star Game Friday (March 29). Haidar was a member of the East All-Stars who defeated the West All-Stars 113-112. Haidar shot 6-of-10 from the field and made his only free throw of the contest.

"This weekend was a great and fun experience," said Haidar. "I got to meet the best players in the country and compete with them. We also got to go to Muhammad Ali's museum which was amazing. I just wish I had any of my teammates with me, so they could have shared the same experience.
And lastly, I want to thank my coaches for nominating me to this game and making this experience possible."

The teams were comprised of two senior student-athletes from each of the eight regions in Division II nominated by coaches and four at-large selections.

Haidar, a native of Windsor, Ont., earned both Daktronics and National Basketball Coaches Association All-America honors and was the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Year the last two seasons.
