BIG RAPIDS — Senior guard Quentin Ruff (Elgin, Ill.) of the Ferris State University men’s basketball program was selected to compete in the 2017 ADDIX Basketball Champions All-Star Game, played on Wednesday in Grand Rapids.

The standout senior guard, who led the Bulldogs to the GLIAC’s regular-season and tournament championships this past season, competed in the annual West Michigan all-star event against the other top seniors from local institutions at Davenport University.

The all-star game annually features the top seniors from schools in the GLIAC along with the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference and the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association. The Grand Rapids area has long been regarded as one of the country’s top locations for small college basketball.

Selections for the all-star game are based on on-court success along with integrity, ethics and character.

Ruff is one of only two NCAA Division II men’s basketball players chosen to compete in the all-star game and will be on the East All-Star Team coached by Hope College’s Greg Mitchell. He was joined by participants from Grand Valley State, Hope, Calvin, Kalamazoo and Alma on the East squad. The West team was led by Cornerstone head coach Kim Elders and included players from Davenport, Cornerstone, Indiana Tech, Lawrence Tech, Aquinas and Grace Bible.

This past year, Ruff ranked as FSU’s second-leading scorer at 13.8 points per contest and ranked among the league leaders with 88 made three-pointers as a senior. He earned All-GLIAC Second Team honors and was the Most Valuable Player in the GLIAC Tournament as the Bulldogs claimed the league’s postseason crown for the third consecutive campaign.
