Having a rich experience in basketball, Dex from Rockland County has successfully represented various teams in his college, school and personal life. Dex had a brief stint on his High school basketball team at Suffern high school. After graduating from Marist College he continued his education at Montclair State. He gained a lot of confidenceafter helping Montclair State’s Club Basketball team to an undefeated 7-0 record in the first semester. MSU’s club program competes in the NCBBA. His goal to become a medical records professional led him to taking classes at different schools while trying to continue his basketball career with the remaining eligibility that was available.
Dex describes, “I was a member of the team at SUNY ulster community college located in New York which is a division two NJCAA. I felt proud to be 1 out of 4 players to make it to the next level after my time at Montclair state. I actually committed to play at County College of Morris after the Montclair state club team, however after a month or so of being on the team I transferred to SUNY ulster and walked on the team later on in the season. I also played semi-pro for the East Carolina Cardinals located in North Carolina. I am still trying to play at a high level and I will be working out with the Ghanaian team called the ‘Braves of customs.’ It is one of the top basketball clubs in Ghana that competes in FIBA competition and have competed in the NBA-BAL qualifiers. Dex has shown great enthusiasm to help the team reach its ultimate goal to win a FIBA qualifier once the pandemic slows down.”
