Over Sunday and Monday, the 6-foot-3 shooting guard performed as well as just about anybody in the building. A well-built off-guard with some bounce, Hicks ended his weekend by going for 21 points (17 in the second half) in an overtime win over Louisiana Select. He can make jumpers, has a nose for offensive rebounds and is tough on both ends of the floor. His Monday performance followed up a huge Sunday that saw him score 51 points on a sizzling 19-of-25 (9-of-11 three-pointers) shooting during a pair of Travelers wins.
