Three Stars of the Day: Bennett, Toolson, Vaden

December 16th, 2007

Three Stars of The Day


We handpick the best performances of the day, whether it be stat lines that make you drool, or clutch performances.  Either way, its our way of showing the love:


Demetric Bennett - South Alabama

Leading the Jaguars to a win over disappointing Mississippi State, Bennett had a smoking hot 39 points on 14 of 17 shooting, 6 of 6 from three


Ryan Toolson - Utah Valley State

Finished with 35 points and hit huge threes in regulation, OT, and Double-OT, as the Wolverines beat Southern Utah 91-88


Robert Vaden - UAB

Blowing through his career high by scoring 33 points, Vaden helped UAB get a semi-road win against Kentucky


Other Top Performers

Connor Atchley - Texas - The 6-10 junior is taking his game to another level this year, evidenced by his 26 point, 10 rebound effort last night


Todd Brown - Wright State - Not his best game, but Brown's three with less than a second to go gave the Raiders a one-point win over Miami (OH)


AJ Graves - Butler - Setting a season-high with 7 threes, Graves finished with 25 points as the Bulldogs beat FSU by 11
