Overtime! Blog’s Three Thursday Night Stars
Star No. 3 – Kenny Ortiz, Wagner
The reigning NEC Defensive Player of the Year had quite a night on the offensive end for Wagner.  Spearheading the Seahawks’ 86-75 victory over two-time defending league champ LIU Brooklyn, Ortiz tallied 19 points and 11 assists.  The hard-nosed point guard sank his lone two three-point attempts on Thursday night as Wagner went onto set the NEC single-game record for three-point field goal percentage (.900).

Star No. 2 – Coron Williams, Robert Morris
Williams used the 3 to help Robert Morris avoid an 0-3 NEC start on Thursdays night at Fairleigh Dickinson.  The veteran guard went 8-for-10 shooting from downtown on the way to 27 points in 30 minutes.  Williams, who had a turnover-free performance, was hot from the start.  After Melquan Bolding hit a three to give FDU its only lead of the game at 3-0, Williams nailed back-to-back trifectas and the Colonials were on their way.

Star No. 1 – Frankie Dobbs, Bryant
For the second Friday in a row, Overtime’s No. 1 Star wears Black & Gold.  After Dyami Starks claimed the honor last week, the spotlight shifts to Dobbs.  The senior point guard made Thursday night an historic one for the Bulldogs.  Surpassing the 1,000-point milestone in the process, Dobbs scored 24 as the Bulldogs set program records for points in a game (103) and wins in a season (10) at the Division I level.  Oh, and his assist-to-turnover ratio last night? That would be 6-to-1. #Wow
