Former Prairie View A&M Panther standout Forward Dorian McDainel has been something of a globetrotter far before his days playing professional basketball. Orininally from Harlem, NY, Dorian spent a lot of time traveling between Germany, Los Angelos and New York because of his father' James' acting career. If the name James McDaniel rang a bell, it should've, because he was a main fixture Lt. Arthur Fancy, on the popular 90's cop show NYPD Blue. The fact that his father spent a lot of time on location, Dorian became used to traveling a lot to follow his father. His mother Hannlore is a native German so he became quite familiar with frequently traveling abroad to visit family. He even speaks German fluently with no accent. 
Dorian started his prep career at Westchester High School in Los Angeles. Westchester is a premier school in the high school basketball circuit and had produced NBA products such as: Hassan Adams, Trevor Ariza, and Amir Johnson, whom Dorian played with. Dorian excelled during his time at Weschester and gained additional notoriety playing in junor tournaments in Germanyduring his various family visits.
By 2005, Dorian began his collegiate career at the University of Northern Colorado in Greely, Colorado. There as a freshman he averaged a modest 1.7 points and 1.5 rebounds per game. 
After his freshman year there was a coaching change, so Dorian decided to take his game east to Prairie View A&M University where he redshirted the 2006-07 year (My senor year there). 
From 2007-2009 Dorian made his mark as a team leader and a prolific 3-point shoter averaging 5.5 ppg, 7.7 ppg and 8.0 ppg respectively. 
in 2010 Dorian began his professional career playing in Germany's Bundesliga League for the Dusseldorf Giants. This team is no stranger to having signed a Prairie View A&M basketball player having signed former guard Gregory Burks in 2007. Dorian spent a lot of time as a reserve but late in the season logged heavy minutes.
This season Dorian plays for the German club Cuxhaven Bascats of the Bundesliga and looks to have a bigger role and improve his basketball stats. Dorian will blog for about his expereinces.
