Hawkins' team has been through their ups and downs, but it's great to hear Dominique has become comfortable shooting the rock.  Hawkins' biggest hurdle to more playing time last season was finding the confidence to take the big shot, as teams gave Dominique wide open looks from deep range all year. Hopefully he'll bring some of those big shots from China home and we will see the dead-eye Dominique that won Madison Central a Sweet 16 Championship.
