Dallas Dickerson BasketballDallas Dickerson of Anchorage pumped in a season-high 11 points to help Fort Lewis College beat Texas-Permian Basin 69-54 at the Lubbock Christian Tournament in Texas.

The sophomore guard didn’t score until the final play of the first half when she made at the buzzer.

Dickerson carried that momentum into the second half as the Skyhawks pulled away to win their third straight game to open the NCAA D2 women’s basketball season.

It was the fourth time in 29 career games that the former Alaska Class 3A player of the year reached double figures in college. Her career high is 15.

Dickerson, of Anchorage Christian fame, has emerged as a reliable scorer coming off the bench for Fort Lewis.

She is averaging 5.9 points per game in her career as a reserve – 3.0 ppg as a starter.

This year the 5-foot-8 Alaskan is shooting .476 percent [10-for-21], a vast improvement from her freshman season [.352].
