He started the week with a 20-point effort in the semifinal contest against Victory (Tenn.) University to take over the top spot on the scoring list. Dockery's 20 points led King in a 101-76 win to send the team to a second-straight region championship game. He also pulled in seven rebounds.

Saturday he led all scorers at No. 5 Campbellsville (Ky.) University with 23 points to send King back to the NCCAA Division I National Tournament for a second-straight season. To get to 23 points, he was 10-for-12 at the free throw line as the Tornado won a 70-59 decision.
