Coach Padgett on Dawkins: “Kadyn plays hard on every possession of the game. He truly wanted to win every single game. Kadyn shot the midrange jumper at a high percentage but can also shoot the three-pointer quite reliably. He shot well off the dribble and showed that he has strong shooting mechanics. Kadyn can improve on using both hands. He was great at getting to the basket at any time.
