Former Highlander Makes NBA Debut

(February 23, 2012) -- Former McLennan Community College basketball player Eric Dawson has signed a 10-day deal with the San Antonio Spurs and made his NBA debut this week.

Dawson, a San Antonio native, played for MCC in 2000 before transferring to Midwestern State University. He has spent the last five seasons playing for the Austin Toros of the NBA D-League and has also spent time playing in Asia and South America.

The Spurs called up Dawson following the injury of Tiago Splitter. In his debut game Tuesday night, Dawson scored nine points and pulled down six rebounds in 31:41 on the floor.
