Senior had a career day for the Central Connecticut men’s basketball team this past weekend at Maine and was recognized as the Northeast Conference Player of the Week.

Kohl earned the honor for the third time this season after leading CCSU to a 93-90 victory in double-overtime against the Black Bears.

He netted a career-high 33 points on 8-for-12 shooting from the field, including 5-for-8 from beyond the arc and 12-for-13 from the free throw line. He also contributed seven rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Kohl finished with eight points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in the extra sessions alone.

He became just the third player in the nation this season to finish with at least 33 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals against a Division I team and the second to score at least 33 points with 12 or fewer field goal attempts.

The Allentown, Pa., native posted his second 30-point game of the season, scoring 20-plus points for the seventh time this season and 20th time in his two-year CCSU career.

Kohl ranks in the NEC’s top 10 in scoring (19.3, 2nd), rebounding (6.4, 8th), assists (4.0, 6th), steals (1.4, 9th), field goal percentage (.481, 10th), free throw percentage (.879, 2nd), three-point percentage (.392, 9th) and assist-to-turnover rato (1.26, 9th).

The Blue Devils are 6-6 on the season and will travel to Oregon State for their next game on Saturday, Dec. 29. The game will be carried on the Pac-12 Network and tip off at 8 p.m.
