CORTLAND, N.Y. - The State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) has selected Brockport senior Tyler Collins (Newark, N.Y.) as this season's first recipient to be named the Men's Basketball Athlete of the Week.
Collins was the star of a Golden Eagles offense that was two points shy of the century mark on Friday when they earned their first win of the season, 98-91, against Medaille College. The guard scored a career-high 31 points in 35 minutes of play, shooting 12-for-19 from the field and 5-for-6 from three point range, and was 2-for-3 from the free-throw line. The senior also got his teammates involved with seven assists, and nabbed five rebounds. Collins was tenacious on defense as well, recording five steals and two blocks.
