Five games into the 2013-14 season, the Huskies (2-3) are getting just about exactly what they expected from Perris Blackwell, the fifth-year senior who sat out last year after transferring from San Francisco.

He’s averaging 11.8 points, 0.8 assists and 0.5 steals, which are nearly identical to the numbers he put up during his last year with the Dons. As a junior, he averaged 12.7 points, 0.9 assists and 0.4 steals.

However, the 6-9 and 275 pound has proven to be a better rebounder and shot blocker than advertised. He’s also playing more minutes than ever before.

Blackwell is averaging 8.0 rebounds, which is nearly two rebounds more than his last year at San Francisco. He averaged 0.3 blocks in 2011-12 and this season he’s up to 1.5.

It’s just that we got in a lot of foul trouble, so we had a lack of bigs. So it was just tough trying to pick up with…
