College career[edit]

Dahlman came to Wofford from Braham, Minnesota,[1] where he led Braham Area High School to three state championships. A 6'7" forward, Dahlman became one of the best players in Terrier history. For his career, he scored 2,013 points - most in Wofford's Division I history. He was a three-time first team Southern Conference pick and was named Southern Conference Player of the Year by the league's coaches as a junior in the 2009–10 season.[2] Dahlman was also named an honorable mention All-American by the Associated Press that season.[3]

Dahlman also led the Terriers to unprecedented team success. He was two-time Southern Conference tournament Most Valuable Player (2010, 2011) as Wofford gained its first two NCAA tournament bids in school history.[4]

He was named Forward of the Year and to the All-Macedonian League First Team. In July 2013, he signed with Bulgarian team Balkan Botevgrad.[6]
