Junior-college point guard Trey Dickerson has been a source of positive news for Hawkeye fans who have had their spirits tested twice in the last week.
On Saturday, after Iowa’s stunning season-ending home loss to Illinois, Dickerson — a 6-foot-1 point guard from Williston (N.D.) State College — gave a verbal commitment to Fran McCaffery’s Hawkeyes.
On Thursday night, Dickerson re-affirmed his commitment to Iowa on social media after some Twitter users taunted him following the Hawkeyes’ 67-62 first-round loss to 11th seed Northwestern in the Big Ten Tournament.
Iowa still going to the tournament so Nebraska fans stop with the hate ✋ and I’m a hawkeye nothing’s gonna change that

A New York City native, Dickerson averaged 19.8 points and 5.7 assists this past season for Williston. He would have three years of eligibility at Iowa.
