Lakota standout still loves rez ball


January 17, 2019

RAPID CITY— Much has changed for Box Elder’s Dylan Pourier since he was a sophomore at Douglas High School. He had his coming out party last year in Sioux Falls at State AA, as the Douglas Patriots finished fifth, and fans were wondering who this high flying scoring machine from out west was, and where had he been hiding. Since then, he has transferred to Rapid City Stevens to play his senior year under Head Coach Chris Stoebner, hoping to get the kind of experience and exposure needed to contribute to a good college program.

“The biggest thing for me right now is getting consistent on the outside and knocking down shots,” Pourier said. “You know, last year (at Douglas) we kind of had our roles, drive and kick, and that’s how we got shooters open, and if you were catching the ball, it was off a good pass inside out. The biggest adjustment, is AA basketball is a lot more physical, and the help defense comes over a lot faster, and there’s a lot more guys in the paint when you’re in there. So, you have to knock down outside shots and midrange jumpers, just gotta keep working on it.”
