Every time Dominique Hawkins gets a chance to play, he seems to make something good happen with his energy and fearlessness. There’s not a loose ball he won’t go after or a rebound he thinks he can’t grab.
Sure, he’s not shooting a lot, or making enough, from the outside yet, but this team doesn’t need that. Just ask John Calipari.
“Dominique went in and made two or three plays just by hustle next to the goal. Now, why aren’t my 6‑6 guards doing that? He’s in there, just fighting like crazy, and it’s a great lesson for us. You know, because if we can get our whole team playing that way, we become pretty good,” Calipari said.
