All-conference sophomore guard Dominique Watson has powered his way through the competition to take his place as the number one scorer in the Northwestern Athletic Association of Community Colleges.
The Titan men have had a rocky season so far, but with only five games left in the regular season, the time to turn it on is now.
"The season has been okay," Watson said. "We've been struggling a bit, but we'll bounce back."
Watson began his journey in Las Vegas, Nev. where he attended Mojave High School. He was a shooting guard for coach Tony Hopkins and the Rattlers. He was named first-team, All-Sunset selection and was the sixth-leading scorer in the city.
Watson draws his inspiration from some surprising areas. While he notes that he is a big Lebron James fan and also influenced by Michael Jordan, he is mainly inspired by his brother CJ Watson, who plays guard for the Golden State Warriors.
Coach Bruce Chavka is happy to have Watson back from his ineligible status of Fall term. "He is a great player," Chavka said. "He doesn't cause any friction and is a good guy."
The sophomore's outlook on Titan basketball is simple. "As sophomores, the rest of the team reflects off our energy when it comes to game time," Watson said. "The other teams aren't a threat to us. Nobody can beat us but ourselves."
Watson is looking forward to continuing his education at a four-year school where he plans to pursue a major in business.
Fans can watch Watson and the Titans as they face off against the Lakers of Southwestern Oregon Community College on Saturday, Feb. 13, at 6 p.m.
