Sutton went from a defensive role player at Kansas State to a leading offensive player at North Carolina Central, back to a defensive role player with the Tulsa 66ers. Slightly undersized at 6'5, but athletic, strong and extremely intense, Sutton averaged 9.8 points and 6.0 rebounds for the 66ers, using up pretty much every one of his fouls in doing so. He takes pride in being the garbage guy and hits the glass, chases down the ball, and gives no ground. He doesn't, however, score much. Sutton is a poor shooter and ball handler, and has to survive in a similarly garbage-man style on offense. He also turns 27 before the next season starts, and while the aforementioned Damion James may not have the same consistently intense man to man defense, he offers better size and better skills to the defensive stopper role that the two both seek to fulfil.

Kansas State were wildly overrated to begin this season, and then promptly disappointed everyone. They struggled out of the game, then struggled worse, and suffered a great deal of midseason player turmoil. And then somehow, they stemmed the tide.
Much of their struggles were attributed to the graduation of Denis Clemente, whose ball handling, speed and slashing gave the Wildcats dimensions they otherwise lacked. Also losses were big man Luis Colon (who couldn't score, rebound, pass or defend, but who was at least big), and junior wingman Dominique Sutton (whose Adrian Griffin-like performances were much unheralded in light of the Clemente love). Colon graduated and plays professionally in the Puerto Rican BSN, while Sutton transferred to NC Central to be nearer to his family.
