Devoe Joseph will play in the 2012 Reese's Division I College All-Star Game while Olu Ashaolu will compete in the Denny's Slam Dunk event as part of the 24th Annual State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships.

The 2012 Reese's Division I College All-Star Game features 20 of the nation's most outstanding seniors from NCAA Division I, and is selected by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. The game will be played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this Friday, March 30 at 1:35 p.m. (PT). The game is scheduled to be televised on TruTV this Saturday, March 31 at 10 a.m. (PT).

Joseph, was named to the West All-Star team and is one of two Pac-12 players on the West squad along with Jorge Gutierrez from California.

Joseph averaged 16.9 points per game, and had double figure scoring in 27 of the 28 games he played in this past season.

The 24th Annual State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships will take place at Tulane University's Fogelman Arena this Thursday, March 29, starting at 6 p.m. (PT) and will be televised by ESPN, on Thursday.

Ashaolu is one of seven players confirmed for the dunk competition, along with Miles Plumlee (Duke), Kenny Gabriel (Auburn), DeQuan Jones (Miami), William Mosley (Northwestern State), James Justice (Martin Methodist) and David Kyles (Wichita State).

This year, fans will be the "Fifth Judge" during the Denny's Slam Dunk Championship by voting via Twitter. Fans can vote on every dunk by simply tweeting #CollegeSlam, followed by the player's last name and a score between one and ten (E.g. #CollegeSlam #Smith10). From there, Mass Relevance, the technology leader in social curation and integration, will calculate all fan scores and deliver an average rating via their platform. That rating will be presented as the "Fifth Judge" and paired with four celebrity judges' scores to make up each player's total score.
