After playing for the Providence College Friars, DiGregorio was drafted by the Kentucky Colonels of the American Basketball Association but opted instead for the NBA. He was selected third overall by the Buffalo Braves in the 1973 NBA Draft and won the NBA Rookie of the Year Award in 1973-74 after averaging 15.2 points and leading the league in both free throw percentage and assists per game. DiGregorio still holds the NBA rookie record for assists in a single game with 25 (a record now shared with Nate McMillan). During the 1976-77 season, DiGregorio led the league in free throw percentage a second time, with a then-NBA record 94.5 percent average. Ernie played another four seasons after his rookie campaign and averaged 9.6 points per game for his career. In addition to the Braves, he also played for the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics.
