WATERVILLE, Maine --- Colby's Adam Choice (Newport, R.I.) will be one of 20 players from across the country to play in the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division III Senior All-Star Game on Saturday at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Va., at 10:30 a.m.

Choice also was named Wednesday to the All-Northeast Region First Team.

This first-ever NABC senior game replaces the consolation game of the NCAA Division III Final Four. Two players from each of the eight regions in Division III were selected to play. The remaining four players will be selected from the two semifinal teams which do not reach the national championship game.

Choice was named to the All-Northeast Region Team for the second straight year, earning third team honors a year ago. He has already been selected as the Maine State Division III Player of the Year for the third time in a row and was on the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) First Team All-Conference squad.

Choice finished his career ranked eighth all-time in scoring for Colby with 1,534 points. He also had 654 rebounds, 185 assists, 134 steals, and 95 blocked shots during his four years.

In the latest NESCAC statistics, Choice ranks tied for second in scoring (18.3), eighth in assists (3.4), ninth in blocked shots (1.04), tied for ninth in steals (1.16), and 10th in rebounding (6.7). He is the only NESCAC men's basketball player since the 2002-03 season to finish the regular season in the top 10 in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals, and blocked shots.
