Dwight Powell anticipates improving on the career year he enjoyed across the board this past season by working on his shot and his defense.
Powell posted career highs in scoring (8.5), rebounding (5.6), assists (1.2), field goal shooting (59.3 percent) and 3-point field goal shooting (33.3 percent) and he was a pleasant surprise especially during the second half of the season. “I think there’s a lot left,” Powell said. “I think regardless of what the numbers said, I didn’t do enough to help us win the games that we wanted to win.” It’s good to see the Stanford product eager to continue to grow but it’s unclear what his role will be next season. Powell showcased an ability to stretch the floor and consistently hit the 3-point shot but he barely played 20 minutes finishing outside the top-125 in 9-cat leagues.
