West Virginia men's basketball senior Jesse Edwards has earned himself one more collegiate game.

It was announced on Tuesday that Edwards will partake in the 2024 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Reese's Division I College All-Star Game this weekend. According to the NABC, the annual all-star event is designed to "feature the top senior student-athletes" in collegiate basketball.

Edwards averaged 15 points and eight rebounds per game during his only season in Morgantown, earning playing time in 23 of WVU's 32 games this year -- he would miss action mid-season due to a fractured wrist.

Edwards was initially projected by Sports Illustrated as a potential second-round pick in the 2024 NBA Draft, but his draft stock has lost steam due to the injury-plagued season on a team that performed extremely poorly. This all-star game opportunity should allow Edwards to potentially garner interest from pro scouts while playing against the top competition in the country.

Edwards will play for the West All-Stars, coached by San Diego head coach Steve Lavin. Lavin is in his second year with the Toreros, and has spent 14 years as a Division 1 head coach, with previous stops at UCLA and St. John's (NY). He has advanced to the NCAA Tournament as a coach eight times -- he has four Sweet 16 appearances and one Elite Eight appearance with a career record of 266–185 (.590).

Tip-off for the Reese's Division 1 All-Star game is set for Friday, April 5 at 3:30 p.m. MST (6:30 p.m. ET), and it will take place at State Farm Stadium in Phoenix as the nightcap event for Reese's Final Four Friday. The game will also be broadcast on CBS Sports Network, and admission to the game and Reese's Final Four Friday is free. The full rosters for the game are listed below.
