Dexter Ryan Cambridge (born January 29, 1970) is a Bahamian professional basketball player. A 6'7" (2.01 m) and 224 lb (102 kg) forward, he had a brief career in the National Basketball Association in early 1993[1] when he played for the Dallas Mavericks. Cambridge attended American institutions Lon Morris Junior College (in Jacksonville, Texas) and the University of Texas at Austin.

NCAA suspension

In November[2] 1991, he was suspended for two months[3] from playing with the Texas Longhorns by the NCAA for having accepted $7,000[2] from a fan[4] when he graduated from Lon Morris Junior College in 1990 which affected his amateur status.[5] It was alleged the money was a reward for his being named a junior college All-American.[2] His two-month suspension ended in January 1992 when he mailed a $4,600 check to a booster at the junior college,[6] regaining his eligibility status.
