Six-foot guard Dylan Pourier helped lead Douglas High to an 18-6 season which ended in an all state honor for Pourier and a lot of excitement for Patriots basketball next season.
“This winter went great for my team, we had a ton of seniors and our goal was to get to state and make a run,” Dyalnd told PHD. “Sadly, we didn’t make the run we need to, to win but we ended up consolation champions, at 5th place.”
Pourier was a part of a balanced team that received contributions from several players. His dozen points a game led the solid group.
“Individually I thought my winter went well,” Dylan said. “I think I really showed what I’m really capable of, and did what I had to to stand out and performed well. My game developed in the aspect of slowing things down a ton. I’ve worked on the pick and roll more, picking my spots, and making the right pass, and slowing things down when needed (because my team is all about running).”
Dylan is now getting ready for the 17u season on a new team. His team will play in six tournament starting with one in Rapid City at the end of April.
“This summer I get to play with a new program Called “Sacred Hoops” it’s based out of the west side of the river, which is convenient,” Dylan said. “The program is just starting up and I feel like the group of guys that are coming in, is the perfect group of guys to get it started. The team is looking good too, we have 4 all conference players and two all tournament players, in me and Ale Rama.”
Pourier wants to play college basketball and playing at the 17u level will help those ambitions as college coaches attend summer basketball events regularly.
“I’ve spoken to a few colleges like Black Hill State, and I’ve reached out to other ones, but at this point no serious talk about offers,” said Dylan.
