NOAH DICKERSON, WASHINGTON
Last year scouts flocked to Washington to evaluate first round talents Marquese Chriss and Dejounte Murray. This year, those same scouts will clamor to get their eyes on Markelle Fultz. But what they will undoubtedly notice on their trip is the leap that Noah Dickerson has taken in his sophomore year. After reinventing his body in Atlanta over the summer,
Noah has boosted his averages
from 7.5 points and 5.2 boards, to 11.7 points and a team-best 8.4 rebounds, respectively. With Chriss playing for the Suns, the Huskies have leaned heavily on the 6-8 Dickerson inside, and he has responded with five double-doubles and an energy around the rim that the 8-8 Huskies sorely need as PAC-12 play gets underway.
Next Game: Wednesday, January 18 vs. Colorado Buffaloes (11PM EST on ESPNU)
