TAMPA, FL – Only two players averaged double digits for the Tampa Catholic Crusaders basketball team a season ago with the top scorer being junior point guard Thomas Dziagwa. Now a senior, Dziagwa has officially committed to play collegiately at Oklahoma State next fall, according to the Tampa Tribune.
Dziagwa averaged a whopping 26.8 points along with 4.5 assists. He connected on 119 3-pointers, shooting 38 percent from downtown as the Crusaders posted a 19-10 record. Back in June, Dziagwa had offers from 12 other programs including USF and FGCU.
At 6-foot-4, he’s very lengthy and can burst up the court in the blink of an eye. At 176 lbs, he should look to add more muscle as he heads to college. Dziagwa failed to reach double digits in only one game a season ago (Jan. 9 against Jesuit) as he dropped 40 point performances three times.
His 43-point, 12 rebound performance against Avon Park in the Class 4A Regional Quarterfinals was a reminder of how dangerous he can be on offense. The 43 points marked a season-high. In the regional semifinal the following week, Dziagwa was contained by Berkeley Prep as he scored 20 points on 6-of-21 shooting. All six field goals scored were 3-pointers while he missed his six 2-point attempts.

Alongside Dziagwa is impressive junior center Kevin Knox. Knox averaged 24.4 points and 10 rebounds last season. With Dziagwa and Knox running the show TC could make a deep playoff run.
Dziagwa is off to do big things at Oklahoma State where he should be able to improve his game even further.
