Branden Dawson showcased skills of the real Branden Dawson during the 2014 Big Ten Tournament.

Like most players, Branden Dawson will have his good games and his bad games in 2014.

However, making the most of the exemplary outings and minimizing the frequency of subpar offerings is what separates top-tier basketball players from mid-tier athletes.

Where he lands is up to Dawson, and only Dawson, a senior who made the wise choice of returning for his final year of eligibility at Michigan State instead of jumping into the NBA draft.

As a senior, he’ll be expected to reach his peak. Typically, that’s been the trademark of Tom Izzo’s Spartans: Fourth-year players carry the load and finish on high notes. Only a quick glimpse to the past is needed in order to prove that. Take a look at what Draymond Green and Adreian Payne did as seniors, and then ask yourself if they took full advantage of their elder statesmanship.

The answer is yes. And you didn’t even have to ask the question to get that answer.

On the surface, he’s easily a 15-and-10 producer. But there is certainly a strong case stating the 6’6”, 220-pound winger could do much more. With all of that being said, let’s move on to delving a little deeper into Dawson’s potential by projecting a few statistics.
