Who's got game? Each month, ESPN RISE finds out. Here are the athletes we recognized in November:
ST. PETER'S -- BOYS' BASKETBALL
The younger brother of former Tennessee and current WNBA star Nicky, O.D. has made a name for himself as one of the state's best bigs. The 6-foot-8, 200-pound senior averaged 16 points and 11 boards per game last year and impressed with his toughness and willingness to mix it up in the paint. Anosike, an ESPN RISE All-Area pick, committed to Siena over the likes of George Mason, Temple and Hofstra in September.
ISLAND TREES -- GIRLS' SOCCER
BRENTWOOD -- FOOTBALL
Trailing 12-0 to Sachem North on Sept. 19, Corporan rallied his troops to a 21-15 win thanks to three consecutive touchdowns in the second half. The senior quarterback finished with 215 passing yards and a score, while rushing for another touchdown. Sachem North was a yard away from tying the game, but a pass from the 1 with eight seconds left was deflected away to seal the victory.
CARDINAL SPELLMAN -- GIRLS' BASKETBALL
Dowe was a double-double machine for the Falcons last year, recording at least 10 points and 10 boards in a game 14 times. Now a senior forward, Dowe averaged 12.0 points and 10.2 rebounds per game as a junior. She led Spellman to the CHSAA B archdiocesan championship game, where the Falcons fell to Maria Regina, despite Dowe's 24 points and 16 boards. She was the lone non-senior selected to the Daily News All-Bronx first team.
