In 1968, Dalmau lead the league in scoring. He repeated as scoring champion in 1970, when he won his first championship as a member of the Piratas de Quebradillas. He also helped lead Quebradillas to back to back to back titles in 1977, 1978 and 1979. He was in conversations in 1975 to sign a contract with the former Utah Stars in the ABA(American basketball association) but he declined to maintain his amateur status.
