WHITMORE TO COACH IN DIVISION III ALL-STAR GAME IN VIRGINIA

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College legend Dick Whitmore will get a chance to coach again this Saturday at the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division III College All-Star Game in Salem, Va.

Saturday's 3:30 p.m. game will be played before the NCAA Division III championship game at the Salem Civic Center.

The NABC selects two retired coaches each year, who had careers in Division III basketball, to coach the two teams. Whitmore will coach one team, which features Trinity College's Shay Ajayi. Dick Reynolds, the former coach at Otterbein University, will lead the other squad.

The teams are composed of two senior players from each of the eight regions in Division III and two seniors selected through on-line voting on D3hoops.com.

Whitmore was the head men's basketball coach at Colby for 40 years and had a 637-341 record. He also was the interim head coach at Thomas College for four games in 2013-14, raising his record to 639-343. Whitmore was seventh all-time in career Division III victories after leaving Colby and ranked eighth heading into this year.

Whitmore was a recipient of the NABC Division III Distinguished Service Award, was inducted into the inaugural class of the New England Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002, and was inducted into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame in 1998.
