Dominic James (born October 5, 1986) is an American professional basketball player who last played for Poitiers Basket 86 (France).

College career[edit]

In 2005–06, James was one of three Marquette players to start every game of the season, while being named Big East Rookie of the Year honors, in addition to numerous other awards. James topped his previous career high 28 points with a team leading 29 points at DePaul University on January 17, 2006. James notched his first double-double of the season at the University of Louisville on March 1, 2006, with 16 points and a team leading 11 rebounds.

On March 3, 2007, James tallied a career high 10 assists while missing eight minutes due to cramps in the Golden Eagles' victory over 12th ranked Pittsburgh. After the 2006–07 season, James entered the 2007 NBA Draft but withdrew on June 17, 2007.[1]

His college career was thought to be finished on February 25, 2009 when he broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot in a 93–82 loss to the Connecticut Huskies.[2] However on March 29, 2009, James was cleared to play in the Golden Eagles' second round matchup against Missouri late on the eve of the game.[3]

Professional career[edit]

James went undrafted in the 2009 NBA Draft, but was invited to play for the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2009 Las Vegas Summer League. However, James suffered an injury while practicing with the team prior to the start of the Summer League and was consequently removed from the roster. James was later invited to participate in the Bucks' training camp. A little over a week into training camp, James was released after receiving an offer from Turkish team Mersin Büyükşehir Belediyesi SK in October 2009. James spent the 2010–11 season with PBC Lukoil Academic in Bulgaria. In October 2011, James signed with Aris BC in Greece.[4] In January 2012, he left Aris due to unpaid wages and moved to play in Serbia for KK Partizan. In February 2013 he played for Poitiers Basket 86 (ProA), where he scored 34 points in his first game against one of the best teams of the championship.[5]
