Dickerson sparks early lead that carries Eckerd into SSC semis
The former Alaska 3A player of the year drained back-to-back 3-pointers to kickstart a 10-0 run in the first quarter that carried the Tritons to a 62-45 win over Florida Tech in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Dickerson, of Anchorage Christian High fame, finished with eight points and also grabbed five rebounds – twice her season average.
The win came in the quarterfinals of the Sunshine State Conference tournament and helped Eckerd [21-6] advance to the semifinals for the second straight year.
Dickerson missed last season with an injury.
The 5-foot-8 junior guard is 33-for-87 from 3-point land and this was the ninth time she’s made at least two 3s in the same game. Twice, she’s made four from deep in a game.
