RIVER FOREST, Illinois -- The D3hoops.com Team of the Week presented by Scoutware was released on Monday night with Dominican University junior Tim Robertson landing on the team recognizing the top five performers from across NCAA Division III for games spanning January 30th through February 5th, 2017. Playing in two of the Stars' three games last week, Robertson averaged 30.0 points and 9.5 rebounds per game while shooting 63.4-percent from the field and 40-percent from three-point distance.
In an 86-85 win over Rockford at the Igini Sports Forum last Tuesday, Robertson paced the Stars with a career-high 34 points on 16-for-26 shooting from the field. The Chicago native collected nine rebounds, three blocks and three steals in 33 minutes of work to round out the effort. During the final 11 minutes of the game, Robertson dropped in 18 points as Dominican overcame a 61-43 deficit to run their record to 7-2 at home.
Robertson followed up his career night with 26 points and ten rebounds for his seventh double-double effort of the season. Robertson again helped fuel a furious second half comeback for the Stars, dropping in 15 points on 5-for-6 shooting from the field to negate an 11-point, 57-46, advantage for the Concordia Wisconsin Falcons with less than 12 minutes to play. Robertson's three as time expired in regulation, his second three-pointer in the final 30 seconds, knotted the score at 90-90, sending the Stars and Falcons to overtime.
On the year, Robertson ranks fifth in the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) in scoring at 19.0 points per game and eighth in rebounding, pulling down 8.0 boards per game. Add in the junior's 35 blocks on the season and Robertson's numbers are up from the past two seasons in nearly every category.
Dominican, now 11-10 on the year and 8-8 in the NACC, return to action on Wednesday night, traveling to Aurora University to take on the Spartans. The Stars currently sit in a three-way tie for fourth place in the league standings with four games to play. Dominican is trying to earn a spot in the six-team NACC Tournament for the first time since the 2012-13 season. The Stars can secure their spot with two wins in their last four games and can earn a first round home game by finishing in fourth.
