Former Saxon hoopster Jeremiah Dominguez Honored
The diminutive point guard named to the Portland State University Hall of Fame
A big honor for a compact basketball player was announced today at Portland State University.
Jeremiah Dominguez was tabbed for the 2022 PSU Athletics Hall of Fame in a press release put out by the University on Tuesday.
The 5-6 Dominguez played only two seasons at Portland State, but had a huge impact as the starting point guard, leading the team to its first two NCAA Division I Tournament appearances. Dominguez earned a grand slam as a junior being named Big Sky Player of the Year, Newcomer of the Year, 1st team All-Big Sky and Big Sky All-Tournament in 2007-08. He was a first team All-Big Sky choice and the Big Sky Tournament MVP in 2008-09.
Dominguez led his Viking teams to a pair of 23-10 records in his two seasons – the most wins ever in a season for a PSU team, and they did it twice. Dominguez was a four-time Big Sky Player of the Week. Despite playing only two seasons, he ranks third all-time in three-pointers made (173), fifth all-time in steals (117) and fourth in three-point percentage (.435) at the time of his induction.
Dominguez holds the school record for three-pointers in a season – 89 in 2008-09 –he broke his own mark of 84 from the previous season. He led the team in scoring, assists, three-pointers made and steals during each of his two seasons while pacing the Big Sky Conference in steals once and three-pointers made twice.
Jeremiah was an outstanding player for South Salem High School, guiding the Saxons to a pair of state tournament appearances in 2003 and 2004—including a 2004 state title. Dominguez was a second team all-tournament player in 2003 when South finished eighth, and a first team selection in 2004, when South Salem topped Redmond 54-43 in the championship game at MacArthur Court in Eugene. Jeremiah was also a two-time Valley League player of the year.
Portland State will host an induction ceremony on January 27. Details of the ceremony will be released at a later date.
