Derek Willis will represent Kentucky one last time as a college basketball player on Friday, as he participates in the Reese’s All-Star game in Phoenix. The game is at 6:30 pm ET at the University of Phoenix Stadium, which is the home of the Final Four. Willis is one of 20 seniors who will play in the game. The Kentucky native stepped up his play on both ends of the court towards the end of the season.

During his four years at Kentucky he scored 555 points, grabbed 354 rebounds and made 108 three-point field goals. He shot 39.8% from the three-point line, which is 12th in program history.

KSTV took a look at how Derek Willis can help himself with a good showing at the game on Friday.
