In his time at Dayton, Pierre did some of everything. Pierre averaged 12.6 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game in his senior season with the Flyers. The 6’6″ forward scored nearly 1,500 points in his college career and led his team to a lot of success.
One of the keys to Pierre’s play as a professional will be his three point shooting. Pierre shot over 38% from behind the arc in his time as a Flyer. After playing power forward for most of his Dayton career, Pierre will need to play the 3 if he wants to succeed at the next level. This is something Pierre is fully capable of doing. Continuing to work on his three point jumper along with his defense will help make this transition seamless.
