Former Ole Miss star Terrico White has been selected to participate in the Dream Factory Dunk Contest and the Shooting Stars Competition this Saturday during the NBA D-League's All-Star Weekend festivities.

White, a member of the Idaho Stampede, will be one of four contestants to show off his dunking skills in the competition modeled after the NBA Slam Dunk Contest. Not only a high-flyer, the former Rebel will also display his shooting ability, battling 11 others in a contest that tests players' accuracy from a variety of ranges and locations on the floor.

White is averaging 13.1 points per game, while shooting at a 48.9 percent clip from the floor and 40.8 percent from behind the arc in his first season in the D-League after a stint with the Detroit Pistons. While in an Ole Miss uniform, White earned SEC Freshman of the Year honors in 2009 and helped lead the Rebels to the NIT in 2010, averaging 15.1 points and 4.6 rebounds.

You can watch Terrico in the Dunk Contest during halftime of the D-League All-Star Game, which begins at 1 p.m. CT, on NBA TV. The Shooting Stars Competition will take place at the conclusion of the game and can be watched via live streaming video on http://www.nba.com/futurecast.

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.
