Combo guard Dwayne Okantey (191-G, college: Lasell) started his career at Broward College (1998-2000) where he averaged 18 ppg and 3 apg to move on to Lasell College (2000-2002) where he played mostly as a shooting guard to average 20 ppg and 6rpg during that time.

After college, he played with the Harlem Abassadors and then in the Dominican Republic for La Romana (22,5 ppg) just to play in the TNA in Argentina in 2004 (19,5ppg).He was signed by Argentino Junin but tore his ligaments in the knee during the preseason.

After rehab, he joined Libertad of Paraguay for the Liga Sudamericana where he had 17 ppg , but the team got eliminated in the first round. He would be a good addition to the national team,since he holds the passport and with the likes of Alhaji Mohammed (191-G-81, college: Louisville) (in the Netherlands) and Kofi Danquah (204-C-81, college: W.Chester) (who is in Chile), a strong team could be formed.
