Because of some of the other big individual and team runs in the Allen County Athletic Conference last season, some people may have forgotten what an impact that Heritage’s Bree Dossen has on almost every game she is a part of.
Limited to single digit scoring just five times last season, Dossen shot 45 percent from he field while averaging a team best 14.9 points per contest. She doesn’t mind leaking out to the perimeter, where she hit 30 percent of her 66 three pointers last year, but she is a powerhouse at the rim, using size and a modest aggression to dominate the glass. Offensively, she is good for a couple of big rebounds per game (or as many as six last season against Leo) and it is an element that keeps the Patriots moving.
It also helps Dossen in what is likely her biggest strength, scoring through contact at the rim. She posted five double-doubles last year and was a single rebound away from doing so on five other occasions. Dossen is incredibly difficult to contend with at the basket or within five or so feet on both sides of the floor. He arms are constantly in motion and her hands have a knack for finding the ball, a reason why she led the team in blocks and was second in steals.
“Bree is very athletic and has the potential to have some big games this season,” says Heritage coach Melissa Connor.
