Dominique Lacy and the SC Pro Am

Dominique Lacy Highlights (SC Pro Am Action)

After broadcasting live ( and live tweeting highlights (@AugBball) and commentary for two sessions at the SC Pro Am ( in Columbia, South Carolina, one thing is obvious:  Dominique Lacy has made a huge name for himself among the professional and college players, the coaches, and the fans involved with this impressive league.  Lacy played his collegiate basketball at UNC-Wilmington and is entering his third professional season after playing for one year in Germany and another in Bahrain.

During a recent game, Terry Dozier, most recently the incoming coach at new Columbia area high school Westwood Academy and formerly a standout for the South Carolina Gamecocks, the Charlotte Hornets, and several international clubs, called Lacy "the player who has had the best summer at the SC Pro Am."  Dozier, who coaches the DJ's Seafood team in the summer league, went on to explain that Lacy only needs an NBA team with the appropriate "fit" to give him an opportunity for the electric wing to make his way onto basketball's biggest stage.

We too are big fans of Lacy.  It is hard not to be.  He competes relentlessly in all areas of the game and genuinely enjoys playing the game the right way, supporting teammates and giving maximum effort regardless of the score.  Lest we forget, Lacy is an extremely gifted player, as you can see in the highlight video above.  And yes, all of these highlights were collected over the course of two games.  And yes, we did leave a lot of stuff out.  And yes, the highlight of his dunk last Thursday night did, in a matter of hours, make its way from the @AugBball twitter feed all the way to the top of SportsCenter's "Top 10 Plays."

Basketball fans in the Columbia area are well advised to attend SC Pro Am sessions (admission is free!) on Sundays and Thursdays at Heathwood High School.  And those who cannot attend in person should check out the live broadcast of the games at  The first of Thursday's four games begins at 5:30 P.M.
