Dentmon is even more size-deficient than [Lawrence] Westbrook, for his measures in at only 5'11. He briefly formed an explosive midget backcourt with Huskies teammate Isaiah Thomas - Explosive Midget Backcourt would be a decent band name - but graduated in 2009 and went to Israel to play for Hapoel Afula.
