No. 3- Johnny Dee (San Diego)

By Josh Horton

Whenever the Torero’s need a bucket, you can bet your bottom dollar that Johnny Dee will have the ball in his hands. Dee’s 15.0 points per game last season was the best on the San Diego squad, and is poised to do the same thing again this season. Although Dee is 6’0″, which is on the small side for a shooting guard, Dee does not let his height get in the way of his scoring. He is phenomenal at coming off of screens and finding open shots, and he subsequently knocked down most of those shots. He had some very good scoring outputs last season (25 vs. BYU and 27 vs. Siena), but he needs to work on his consistency in that facet of the game. In an away game at Gonzaga, Dee was only able to score 4 points, which will not get it done, especially when the team relies on his scoring so much. This coming season, expect Johnny Dee to score, a lot. Combined with fellow junior back court mate Christopher Anderson, the Torero’s could have a special season.
