    BREAKDOWN: Dewayne Dedmon is a 7-foot, 255-pound redshirt junior power forward with great agility and quickness. He is continuing to refine his game and gain experience, but possesses a very high upside.

    2011-12: Battled through injuries througout the year which curtailed his development, still he averaged 7.6 points and 5.5 rebounds in 20 games, all starts. Scored 10 or more points seven times and grabbed seven or more rebounds eight times. Led the team with a .551 shooting percentage and made 50 percent or more of his shots in 14 of his 20 starts. Suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right hand, second metacarpal neck (just above the knuckle of his index finger) during unofficial practice on Oct. 11. He practiced with a cast or splint on his hand until Nov. 9, two days before the opener. Scored 16 points, had eight rebounds and three blocks in his debut vs. CSUN on Nov. 11. Had 15 points, eight rebounds and three steals in win vs. South Carolina on Nov. 26 in Las Vegas, Nev. Diagnosed with a stress injury in his right foot on Nov. 28. His foot was placed in a walking boot and it was determined that he could miss 4-6 weeks, but he started on Dec. 3 at Minnesota and had two points, four rebounds and two blocks (missed game on Nov. 30 at UCR). On Dec. 10 vs. New Mexico he scored seven points with two blocks and five rebounds and his three-point play with 1:51 left gave USC a 41-40 lead. Had 14 points, six rebounds, three blocks and three steals vs. TCU on Dec. 19. Scored 18 points and grabbed 8 rebounds on the Bay Area trip at the end of December. Had a season-best 18 points at Oregon on Jan. 19 and followed that up with eight points and eight rebounds at Oregon St. on Jan. 21. Suffered a torn left MCL & tibial bone bruise on Jan. 26 vs. Colorado and missed the rest of the season. Before the season-ending injury, he was averaging 9.6 points and 5.9 rebounds in the first seven Pac-12 games as he was finally able to practice on a consistent basis.

    2010-11: Practiced with the USC team beginning in the second semester when he transferred from Antelope Valley College. He did not play for AVC to keep a full season of eligibility.

    2009-10: Played for Antelope Valley College and helped lead the team to a 17-14 record while averaging 6.6 points and 7.8 rebounds. He also had 46 blocks and tied the school record with seven blocks at Chaffey College on Jan. 22. Dedmon had a season-best 15 points vs. Ventura College on Nov. 15 and had a season-high 14 rebounds vs. College of the Desert on Dec. 11. He sustained a broken bone in his forehead and an injured nasal cavity when he was hit by an elbow in the game vs. Victor Valley on Jan. 27. The injury caused Dedmon to miss the final seven regular season games, but he returned for the playoffs and grabbed 13 rebounds, while scoring five points in his first game back, a win vs. Miramar College on Feb. 24.

    2008-09: Attended Antelope Valley as a part-time student, working out and learning the game. He also grew three inches to 7-feet and filled out to 225 pounds

    PERSONAL: Dedmon was born on August 12, 1989. He did not begin playing organized basketball until his senior season of high school due to religious reasons.
