Author: admin

Former University of Washington star Justin Dentmon poured in 40 points to lead the Sichuan Blue Whales to a 109-104 win over Liaoning in game 3 of the Chinese Basketball Association Finals.


Dentmon, a 5-11 point guard, also had 6 rebounds and 6 assists in the win, which gave Sichuan a 2-1 lead in the series.


Hamed Haddadi added 28 points with a whopping 25 rebounds, while Mike Harris (Rice, NBA) chipped in 12 points and 8 rebounds for Sichuan in the victory.


For Liaoning, Lester Hudson (University of Tennessee-Martin) had 31 points with 7 rebounds, while Shavlik Randolph (Duke) added 24 points and 12 boards in the loss.


But the story of the game was Dentmon.


A star at Washington, Dentmon was the Huskies’ third leading scorer as a senior in 2008-09 when he guided the team to a 26-9 record and an NCAA tournament berth.


He was also an All-Pac-10 First-Team selection and was named the Pac-10’s Most Improved Player that year.


Dentmon has averaged 3.3 points and 1.3 assists in parts of two NBA seasons with the Spurs, Raptors, and Mavs.


He has also played in Israel, where he was the league’s top scorer at 19.8 points a game in 2009.


In 2011-2012, he was in the NBA D-league with the Texas Legends, where he averaged 22.8 points, 5.5 assists, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.6 steals and was named NBADL MVP.


Dentmon has also played overseas in Spain, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, Italy, Lithuania, Israel, and Puerto Rico.
