KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Former UMKC men’s basketball player Dashawn King has signed on to play professional basketball with the Brisbane Spartans of the Queensland Basketball League in Australia.
“I’m really happy and excited to go play there,” King said. “I can bring an American style of play to the team. With my game, I’ll add athleticism to the team and excitement to the city. I’ve never been to Australian, but I am looking forward to it.”
King, who will join the team Apr. 1, finished his UMKC career averaging 7.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.8 steals during his two-year, 65-game stint in the Blue & Gold.
