6-foot-8 center/forward Noah Dickerson
Next in descent is 6-foot-8 225 pound Noah Dickerson. Dickerson was on the fence in the time immediately following the coaching change of the team. He decided to remain with the team on April 22, 2017.
That was a good day for the Washington Huskies Men’s Basketball Team. While Dickerson played every game in the 2016-2017 season, his role increased as the season wore on. In fact, his career high came on March 4, 2017 against the USC Trojans. In that game, Dickerson played 37 minutes and scored 27 points on 10-15 shooting from the floor. That came off a performance of 23 points and 15 rebounds against the powerful UCLA Bruins just three days earlier.
Yes Yes To More Noah
The key to a good start to this season is to highlight Dickerson’s offense early in the year. Then, other players can develop around him as the team gains experience together. Dickerson returns for his third season this year and has mastered many of the skills needed to succeed. He shot a respectable 54.7 percent last year, and averaged 12.5 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.
But he has much more to improve upon. His physical dimensions suggest he will likely be steered to a power forward role in the NBA. As such, he will need to develop some proficiency with a perimeter shot this season. Another area on offense is his 67.6 percent shooting from the free throw line. His physical style of play coupled with his offense will draw plenty of fouls this year. As such, foul shots should be on the upside of 75 percent. Finally, Noah stands at 6-foot-8. At that height, he should improve upon his shot blocking. That will place him in the upper tier of PAC-12 Men’s Basketball.
