Wilson helps Eagles dunk Statesmen

Doug Wilson made a big splash in college basketball last season when he led the nation in field-goal accuracy and was named a Junior College All-American for the Kirkwood Eagles.

He's even better this year.

Wilson dunked the ball four times and powered in 26 points Tuesday night as the fifth-ranked Eagles defeated the William Penn junior varsity, 92-72, at Johnson Hall.

Wilson, a 6-foot-7 forward from Des Moines, is averaging 20.1 points and 10.1 rebounds, along with 2.4 assists, 1.7 blocks and 1.3 steals every time on the floor.

He made 12 of 15 shots Tuesday for 80 percent and appears even more explosive than a year ago. He missed a dunk on a breakaway in the first half, but it's hard to criticize a guy who tries so hard.

"He affects the game in a lot of ways," said KCC Coach Bryan Petersen. "We still get on him for a lot of stuff, but he's a heck of a player and he plays really hard. That's what's fun about coaching him."

Wilson can be unstoppable around the basket with his strength and great leaping ability, but he's branched out from there.

"He's matured in a lot of ways," said Petersen. "From an offensive standpoint, he's added to his game with more perimeter skills. He's shooting the free throws better."

Kirkwood finished fifth in their conference this season, then finished fourth in the national tournament.

Kirkwood made a spirited rally after losing the first two sets. The Eagles claimed the third and fourth sets, but Johnson County claimed  the fifth set for the third-place trophy.
