Oregon MBB Commit Finishes Senior Season Strong

The Oregon Men’s basketball team is at the end of one of the most incredible regular seasons ever put together in school history. Losing three starters before the season pinned the team up against a wall – Head Coach Dana Altman and staff have proven all the haters wrong. This young team, led by NBA talent Joseph Young is poised to make a move in this year’s tourney. But with the future on the horizon, and recruiting being a factor, one must think ahead.

In last night’s CIF 4A California State Championship game against Cambell Hall, 5-star Oregon commit Tyler Dorsey of Maranthana High School led his team to a 59-53 victory with 25 points. If you wish to view all of Dorsey’s game stats from this past season, you can go to his maxpreps.com profile here.

This current Ducks team is filled to the brim with freshman talent, another reason why people lost hope in this team. The season started off a little rough, but once things got going, freshmen Dillon Brooks and Jordan Bell found themselves permanently engrained in the starting lineup. With knockdown three-point shooter Casey Benson, speedy guard Ahmaad Rorie and Israeli forward Roman Sorkin all being freshmen, this Ducks team looks set for long-term success.

Now, add Dorsey into this mix. The 6’4 guard finished with averages of 33.6 points and 10.5 rebounds per game this season. In perspective, Kobe Bryant put up 30.8 points and 12 rebounds per game his senior season. Not to say we are looking at the next Michael Jordan, but for Dorsey to put up the numbers he did in talent filled Southern California is astounding. Look for Dorsey to have an immediate impact next year, as Young will be leaving a massive void with his sure-to-be departure to the NBA.

Below, check out Dorsey drop 49 points in a single game.

Fun fact: Dorsey put up 21 points in a 60-53 win earlier this season against my Alma Mater Oak Park High School.
