SBL player of the week, John Dickson.
SBL player of the week, John Dickson.

Dickson, who arrived from the US in mid-January, showed great promise with a 41-point performance in the Tigers’ opening game against Joondalup Wolves.

He backed this up with 28 points, 16 rebounds, two assists and two steals in a week two loss to Rockingham Flames, before leading the Tigers to their first win as they defeated Cockburn Cougars 102-89.

Dickson was pivotal to the win with 31 points and 11 rebounds, and led the league in total points going into round three.

A natural scorer with great athleticism, Dickson is proving a valuable addition to the Tigers, who are also looking forward to the return of 2013 SBL All Star Five shooting guard and league leading three-point shooter Quinn McDowell in the coming weeks.
