Kyle Collinsworth has proven to be a very valuable piece of the Raptors 905 as they have continued to win games.
The former BYU do-everything guard had another strong showing on Tuesday as the 905 squeaked out a 124-123 win over the Erie Bayhawks. He stuffed the stat sheet in the victory, finishing with seven points on 3-for-7 shooting from the field and 1-for-2 from the foul line. He added eight rebounds (a game-high five on the offensive end), handed out four assists and blocked a shot in 27 minutes.
On the season, Collinsworth is averaging 9.4 points a night on 45.2 percent shooting from the field to go along with 5.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks in 29.7 minutes.
Frank Bartley IV showed off his range on Wednesday as his Saint John Riptide fell to the Kitchener Waterloo Titans, 107-84. In the loss, the former BYU guard registered a team-high 15 points on 5 of 13 shooting from distance while grabbing two rebounds in 32 minutes off the bench.
It was easily the best outside shooting night of the young season for Bartley after connecting on just 4 of his first 17 shots from 3-point land in the first three games.
On the season, Bartley is averaging 10.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 22 minutes a game.

In the big win, he registered a game-high 19 points on 50 percent shooting from the floor, including 3-for-8 from distance. He also chipped in with three assists and two rebounds.
Through eight games, for the 5-3 Wolverines, Toolson is averaging a team-best 15.4 points a game on 57.3 percent shooting from the floor, including an astounding 51.5 percent from 3-point range. He also chips in with 3.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 33.1 minutes a contest.
Jordan Chatman has had a bit of an up-and-down start to his season for the Boston College Eagles, who have opened up with five wins in six chances.
Chatman had a tough shooting night on Monday as the Eagles came away with a 68-56 win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. In the key victory, he managed nine points on 4-for-11 shooting from the field, including just 1 of 8 from 3-point range in 37 minutes.
On the season, Chatman is averaging 13.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 37.5 minutes a contest.
Another transfer, Zach Frampton had a strong showing over the weekend as Dixie State outlasted Western Oregon, 80-70. In the win, the former Cougar guard registered eight points on 2-for-3 shooting from beyond the arc and 2-for-2 from the foul line.
