After a successful high-school basketball career in British Columbia, he earned a scholarship to Santa Clara University in California.

Together with Dirk Nowitzki and Michael Finley, Nash led the Mavericks to the Western Conference Finals the following season.

In the 2004–05 season, Nash led the Suns to the Western Conference Finals and was named the league's Most Valuable Player. Source: Wikipedia
