Dakota Slaughter Will Finish Basketball Career at UT-Pan American
Alabama forward Dakota Slaughter has decided to join his former assistant coach Dan Hipsher at UT-Pan American for his final year of eligibility.
Slaughter, who has already graduated from The University of Alabama, will be eligible immediately for the 2015-16 season. He'll have an opportunity to play under Hipsher, who spent four seasons (2009-13) as an assistant for the Crimson Tide.
A walk-on turned scholarship player, Slaughter took advantage of injuries last season to work his way into some key minutes down the stretch. He averaged just over 5 points per game and 14 minutes per game in the final regular season games against Ole Miss, Texas A&M and Florida.
The Broncs, a WAC team that finished 10-21 last season, have a few Alabama connections in their program now. Along with Hipsher and Slaughter, the team also has assistant coach Willie Watson, who was a team manager, player, and eventually a graduate assistant during his seven years in Tuscaloosa.
While Slaughter made some nice contributions on the court for Alabama, we'll always appreciate him for producing this C-Murder and Dixieland Delight remix.
