Noreen, Staten to play for East Coast All Stars
West Virginia basketball players Kevin Noreen and Juwan Staten are representing the East Coast All Stars at the Four Nations Cup, which runs through Wednesday in Estonia.
The East Coast All Stars, a team of players from around the country, will play an exhibition Friday then face the Czech Republic on Sunday, Estonia on Monday and the Republic of Georgia on Tuesday. Guy Rancourt of Lycoming College will serve as the East Coast coach.
Noreen, a 6-foot-10 sophomore from Minneapolis, Minn., averaged 2.2 points and 2.7 rebounds last season before suffering a broken left ankle on Jan. 30. Staten, a 6-1 sophomore from Dayton, Ohio, sat out the 2011-12 season because of NCAA transfer rules. Staten led the Atlantic 10 in assists with 190 during the 2010-11 campaign.
