KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) today announced former Elizabethtown College coach Bob Schlosser and former Ohio Northern University coach Joe Campoli as the head coaches for the 2019 Reese's Division III College All-Star game, which will be played as part of the 2019 NCAA Division III Men's Basketball Championship. Reese's brand is the official candy partner of the NCAA.
The Reese's Division III College All-Star game will be played on Saturday, March 16, at 4:30 p.m. (ET), prior to the NCAA Division III championship game at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Ind. The teams are composed of two senior student-athletes from each of the eight regions in Division III, two seniors selected by online voting on D3hoops.com and two seniors selected by the All-Star Game committee.
Both Schlosser and Campoli have been recipients of the NABC Division III Distinguished Service Award.
The longest tenured and winningest coach in Elizabethtown College history, Schlosser guided the Blue Jays for 27 seasons before retiring following the 2016-17 season. His teams won 364 games, made 16 postseason appearances and four trips to the NCAA Division III tournament. In 2002, the Blue Jays went all the way to the Division III championship game before coming up short against Otterbein. A master of the flex offense, Schlosser mentored 11 of Elizabethtown's 32 1,000-point scorers and earned conference coach of the year honors four times (1992-93, 1998-99, 2000-01, 2001-02).
Taking over as the head coach at Ohio Northern for the 1992-93 season, Campoli didn't wait long to make an impression. The Polar Bears won their first 18 games and went on to win the NCAA Division III championship, finishing with a 28-2 won-lost record. In 17 seasons, Campoli's teams had a 254-101 won-lost record and he earned Division III National Coach of the Year honors in 1993 and 2001 while being named the Ohio Athletic Conference Coach of the Year four times. Campoli and his 1993 ONU championship team were inducted into the Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011.
