Brad Stevens Sounds Off On Dawkins

After the Duke defeated the Bulldogs 82-70 Saturday, Butler head coach Brad Stevens had nothing but high praise for the Blue Devil backcourt.

Stevens called the starting perimeter of Kyle Singler, Nolan Smith and Kyrie Irving three of the best—if not the three best—players in the country. He then went on to say, "Then you bring in two guys [Andre Dawkins and Seth Curry] that don't miss any shots. It's hard to guard."

He might have been exaggerating, but Stevens's words proved almost prophetic after Dawkins's career night against Bradley Wednesday. The sophomore guard, making his first career start, drained 50 percent of his shots for the seventh time in nine games this season, including finishing 8-0f-14 from beyond the arc to raise his 3-point percentage to a blistering 54 percent.

With Irving out indefinitely, Dawkins—and his fellow sharpshooter Curry—will have increased opportunities to show off their offensive skills, and perhaps intimidate a few more opposing coaches in the process.
