He earned seven Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors and was a consensus second team All-American, as well as the Big Ten's Freshman of the Year. Dickinson had 23 double-figure scoring games, including nine 15-plus point games and five 20-plus games, including a career-best 28 points against No. 19 Minnesota on Jan. 6.
The model also knows the Bulls are coming off a 105-54 victory over Medaille in its lone exhibition game. They return senior forward Jeenathan Williams, who led the team in scoring in 2020-21. In 25 games played, Williams averaged 17.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.1 steals per game, hitting on 48.6 percent of his shots from the floor, including 38.6 from 3-point range.
