ASU's Killeen To Represent Country

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Augusta State junior center Jason Killeen was recently named to the Irish Men’s Basketball National Team.

Killeen will be suiting up for the Irish National Team in the European Championships, a lead-up tournament to the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China.

A 6-10, 240-pound native of Limerick, Ireland, Killeen is one of four newcomers to the Jaguar men’s basketball program in 2007-08. He spent the first three years of his collegiate career at Winthrop and averaged 2.1 points and 1.9 rebounds last season for a squad that won 29 games and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

“It is a tremendous honor to represent your country and we are ecstatic that Jason will be part of the Irish National Team,” ASU head coach Dip Metress said. “He’ll gain some invaluable experience and go up against some really talented players as he prepares for the 2007-08 season.”

ASU is coming off the second-winningest season in the history of the men’s basketball program. The Jags posted a 24-7 record and climbed as high as No. 8 in the nation en route to winning the Peach Belt Conference regular season championship and earning the top seed in the NCAA South Atlantic Regional.
