Obviously the jump shot and ballhandling need work, but I hope every day before he leaves the gym he makes 100-200 freethrows. Him shotting under 50% just isnt good enough.

If he can improve this we will win the conference outright.
my hope is that every single player will be in the gym 24/7 this summer working on free throws, jumpers, layups, skyhooks, etc.

Duke had the scouting report right. They let Dawson get the ball because bad things happen for the Spartan offense when he gets the ball. I can remember thinking Jason Richardson shot bricks and jumped out of the gym for a long time. it's easier to improve your game than improve your athleticism.
J Rich as a freshman was light years better as a shooter than Dawson is now. Not even remotely close to a good comparison. J Rich could also dribble as a freshman compared to Dawson now.
Dawson is unique in the fact that he is one of the few guys I have seen get completely by on being a great athlete with very little hoops skill. If he can bring it all together it will be scary but the work he has to put in the next 6 months or so will not be fun for him.
Ball handling, ball handling, ball handling.....did I mention Dawson should work on his ball handling (Oladipo esque)?
Dawson needs to call Oladipo and ask what the hell he did last summer to go super saiyan.
J Rich's handle as freshman was far below par.
I believe he led the team in turnovers averaged per minutes played. Maybe second to Cleaves, but he ran the point.

i'm bored and the tigers don't come on until 4... any word whatsoever on Dawson's progress?
No kidding. Some might want to try to remember that Torbert led the Big 10 in three point shooting percentage his junior year.
He has put on a ton of muscle. I was talking to Anthony Ianni and said Dawson was already working out real hard this offseason.
I recall Grant Hill bulking up one offseason and coming back with an ugly J. However, I suppose BJ's stroke can't get much worse (sorry Mr Pickles)
He can do it
