Fans select College Court Report Player of the Year for third straight season

Mark Alstork was looking to ride the momentum from the past six weeks to the Player of the Year crown, while North Dakota’s Quinton Hooker was looking to win back-to-back Player of the Year awards.
CALGARY, Alta. — The 2016-17 season may be all but a distant memory for most fans across the country, but there was still plenty to be excited about for fans of both the North Dakota Fighting Hawks and the Wright State Raiders.

The third annual College Court Report Player of the Year Fan Vote was in its final week, as the initial field of 96 players had been cut down to just two. Quinton Hooker was matched up with Mark Alstork in the finale, capping off a seven-week journey to name the Player of the Year.

Last year, Hooker was named the CCR Player of the Year, knocking off Damon Lynn in the final round. This time around, fans of North Dakota had a heavy presence on social media, as well as the online polls. As the weeks have gone on, the support system behind Hooker had picked up steam, and he was looking to build on that in the final week.

On the flip side, a heavy dose of social media votes over the first six weeks propelled Alstork into the finals. After a tough battle with guard DeWayne Russell in the semi-finals, Alstork was looking to knock off the reigning Player of the Year.

Both players saw an out-pouring of support over the past seven days across all three voting platforms, but only one could come out on top.

After seven weeks, and over 190,000 votes, the 2016-17 College Court Report Player of the Year is…… Continue reading Fans select College Court Report Player of the Year for third straight season

Fan vote tabs third annual College Court Report Freshman of the Year

Carson Williams rode a steady wave of Facebook votes to advance to the finals. Would they be enough to make him the College Court Report Freshman of the Year?

CALGARY, Alta. — Two players entered the week, but only one would come out on top.

After five weeks of voting, Jashaun Agosto and Carson Williams found themselves in the Finals of the third annual College Court Report Freshman of the Year Fan Vote. Both players have had tremendous followings since the outset of the challenge, both of whom had left their marks in different aspects.

Supporters of Williams have left their mark on social media through the first five rounds. Each week, they have amassed the most votes via Facebook, and have been right near the top in terms of Twitter votes with each passing round.

On the flip side, Agosto has been among the top vote-getters each week in terms of votes cast through the online polls. Voters had pushed him out to an early lead each week, and that has carried him into the finals.

It was a battle of different voting methods this past week, but only one player can be crowned the 2016-17 College Court Report Freshman of the Year.

The winner is…… Continue reading Fan vote tabs third annual College Court Report Freshman of the Year

College Court Report Player of the Year Fan Vote: Final Four Results

Mark Alstork has had a large support group over the first six round of the College Court Report Player of the Year Fan Vote, but would that be enough to send him to the finals?

CALGARY, Alta. — On a night where Russell Westbrook broke the single-season record for triple-doubles with 42, another record fell that was *slightly* overshadowed by Westbrook’s.

Obviously, we’re kidding. The other record was much more significant. (Still kidding.)

After six weeks of voting, the field in the Third Annual College Court Report Player of the Year Fan Vote had been cut down to the final four players. With players from four different regions of the United States represented, the whole nation was still involved.

Fans came out in full force this week, and a record number of votes were cast in the round across the three platforms in the two match-ups. A total of 57,561 votes were cast over the past seven days.

Both match-ups came down to the final day of the round, and fans did everything they could to propel their favourites into the Final Round, which starts Monday.

Here are the results from the two Final Four pairings. Continue reading College Court Report Player of the Year Fan Vote: Final Four Results
