After posting two triple-doubles to end the season, College of Staten Island senior guard Frank Schettino put a punctuation mark on a terrific regular season by being named a Player of the Week a third time by the Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association.  The Dolphins won both of their games last week to gain the CUNYAC Regular Season Championship.

Schettino has been making a habit of triple-double performances, as he added his third and fourth such performances last week.  No other NCAA Division III player has more than one.  Against Brooklyn College on the road last Tuesday, Schettino popped in 14 points in 31 minutes, but added 14 assists as three other Dolphins starters landed in double figures as the Dolphins cruised 86-62.  Schettino would add 10 rebounds and was four steals shy of an unprecedented quadruple-double to boot.  With the CUNYAC Regular Season Championship already clinched, Schettino followed up with one of his finest performances of the season against Lehman College on Friday.  On Senior Night, he recorded 32 points, 12 rebounds and another 10 rebounds, playing all 40 minutes.

Against the backdrop of the eye-popping performances, Schettino broke the school’s all-time career steals record in the win over Brooklyn, and raced past his own single season assists record in the win over Lehman.  On the year, he is averaging 17.9 points, 9 assists, and 6.9 rebounds per game.  He is the NCAA Division III leader in assists, free-throw attempts, and triple-doubles.

This was Schettino’s third MBWA honor this season.  He also won the award on January 9 and January 24.  The Dolphins are now idle until Wednesday, February 22, when they will play in the CUNYAC Postseason Semifinals against a team yet to be determined at 6pm.
