RIVER FOREST, Illinois -- Dominican University junior Tim Robertson became the 18th member of the Stars' 1,000-point club on Tuesday night, scoring 11 points in an 87-72 loss at Concordia University Chicago. The milestone basket for the Chicago-native came in the final thirty-five seconds of the first half when Robertson connected on a jumper to give Dominican a 39-38 lead at the break.
The 2015 D3hoops.com Midwest Region Freshman of the Year, Robertson is averaging 16.4 points per game through the first 61 games of his collegiate career while shooting better than 47-percent from the field.
"I'm happy for Tim," said Dominican University's head men's basketball coach Mark White. "He has worked extremely hard and has improved each season. He rarely faces single coverage and, to his credit, he is still able to put the ball in the basket at a high level."
Robertson has reached double-figures in scoring in 51 of his 61 career games, including 22 20-plus point performances and a pair of 31-point efforts. Robertson's first 31-point night came in his freshman season when he dropped in 31 against Dominican's River Forest rivals the Concordia Chicago Cougars. Robertson then equaled that mark his sophomore season when he scored 31 against the Lakeland College Muskies.
The biggest improvement Robertson has made over his career is his outside shooting. After attempting just four three-point field goals his freshman year, Robertson knocked down 19 threes last season and is shooting 11-for-31 to date on the 2016-2017 season.
Robertson and the Stars, now 5-7 on the season and 3-5 in the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference, return home on Thursday, hosting the Aurora University Spartans for a 7:00 p.m. tipoff in the Igini Sports Forum.
