OLD WESTBURY, N.Y. — It's now time for the Sweet 16 round of the East Coast Conference Play of the Year contest. And NYIT has six plays still alive in the bracket. That's double the number of any other school.
The six NYIT student-athletes remaining are second baseman Joey Fusco (baseball) for a sliding backhand up the middle to throw out the runner, goalkeeper Jonathan Rico (men's soccer) for a save off a header, attacker Shannon Donavan (women's lacrosse) for a goal on a rebound of her own shot, forward Domonic Josephs (men's basketball) for an alley-oop dunk, center fielder Jessica Daniel (softball) for her robbery of would-be home run and forward Alberto Alonso Marchan (men's soccer) for a steal and goal with one second remaining in the first half.
Voting for this round concludes midday Thursday. Please vote at these tweets below.
