#45 Cairns Taipans, Basketball

Height: 200 cm
Weight: 100kg

Dusty played at the University of Minnesota between 1997 and 2002 and averaged 13.3 points and 6.8 rebounds in his senior year. He was also selected to the Big Ten All Conference Team in 2001/02.

Dusty first played for the Victoria Giants when he came to Australia but was then picked up by the Adelaide 36ers in 2002/03.

He had his best year in 2004/05 where he came in the NBL Top 5 for points per game (21.3) and total rebounds (10.8).

As one of the most effective yet unassuming players in the NBL, Dusty continued to put up good numbers in 2005/06 and was a major factor in Adelaide's top 4 finish.

In the off season, Dusty signed a contract to play with the Brisbane Bullets for the next 3 seasons.

In his first year as a Bullet, Dusty became a championship player as the Bullets defeated the Melbourne Tigers.

After the 2007-08 season, the Brisbane Bullets disbanded, releasing Dusty to free agency. The Wollongong Hawks then "swooped" on Dusty, signing him up for 1 season.

Dusty became an Australian citizen in June 2009 and has since signed a 2 year deal to play for the Cairns Taipans.
