Sean East II

Sean East II is set to represent the University of Missouri men’s basketball team on the national stage, featuring among the top senior talent from across the country at the 2024 NABC – Reese’s Division I All-Star Game, announced on Tuesday.

East finished the 2023-24 campaign ranked fifth in the SEC with 17.6 points per game and seventh with 4.0 assists per game. His 17.6 points are the most by a Tiger in 10 seasons, while also becoming just the sixth player in school history to average at least 15 points and four assists in a single campaign.

The 2024 SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, East also ranks among the most improved players in the country this season. He increased his scoring average by 10.3 points per game – ranking first in the SEC, sixth-most among power-conference players and the most by a Tiger since 1976-77.

East is the only SEC player selected for the All-Star game and will feature for the West Team, coached by Steve Lavin of San Diego. He is the second-straight Tiger to earn an invite after D’Moi Hodge competed last season.

The All-Star game will take place on Friday, April 5 at 5:30 p.m. CT at State Farm Stadium in Phoenix as part of Reese’s Final Four Friday. The game will be broadcast live on CBS Sports Network and admission to the game and Reese’s Final Four Friday is free.
