    Champaign, Ill. - Bruce Weber is an assistant coach in the 2010 Reese's College All-Star Game, which takes place Friday, April 2 at 3:30 p.m. CT. The game is part of the Final Four weekend in Indianapolis and will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium. CBS College Sports will televise it live.

    The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) has selected rosters for the game, featuring some of the top seniors in the nation. Weber and Purdue coach Matt Painter will serve as assistants under former Purdue head coach Gene Keady for the Reese's All-Stars, who will take on the Hershey's All-Stars. Former Indiana State head coach Bill Hodges will coach the Hershey's squad, assisted by Jeff Jones of American and Seth Greenberg of Virginia Tech.

    Players on the Reese's roster are Jerome Randall (California), Tre'von Hughes (Wisconsin), Chris Kramer (Purdue), Michael Roll (UCLA), Tyren Johnson (Louisiana-Lafayette), Aubrey Coleman (Houston), Patrick Christopher (California), Dominic Calegari (UC Davis), Art Parakhouski (Radford), Eric Boateng (Arizona State) and Bryan Davis (Texas A&M).

    The Hershey's roster, meanwhile, includes Scottie Reynolds (Villanova), Deonta Vaughn (Cincinnati), Jermaine Beal (Vanderbilt), Rodney Green (LaSalle), Edwin Ubiles (Siena), Lazar Hayward (Marquette), Ryan Wittman (Cornell), Robert Glenn (IUPUI), Jeff Foote (Cornell), Gerald Lee (Old Dominion) and Adam Koch (Northern Iowa).

    This is Weber's third time coaching in the NABC College All-Star Game. Last year, Weber led the Reese's All-Stars to victory over the Hershey's All-Stars at Ford Field in Detroit. Weber also directed the Senior All-Stars to victory over the Harlem Globetrotters in 2006 at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
