Former Blue Demon Lemone Lampley Returns to DePaul
CHICAGO - Former DePaul basketball standout Lemone Lampley has been named the Assistant Director for Athletic Development it was announced today by Blue Demon Athletic Director Jean Lenti Ponsetto.
"We are thrilled to have Lemone returning to the DePaul athletic family. He is a tremendous example of how intercollegiate athletics can prepare a student-athlete for a successful life after their playing career has been completed," Ponsetto said. "Lemone will be a fantastic representative for our department and we look forward to having him work with our alumni on a daily basis."
"I am very enthusiastic about returning to my alma mater especially in athletics where my roots at DePaul began," Lampley said. "I am looking forward to connecting with my fellow alums and helping to enhance the collegiate experience for current and future Blue Demon student-athletes."
A Chicago native and Chicago Vocational High School graduate who played for DePaul from 1982-86, Lampley concluded his college career as the fourth-best shot blocker in school history and is still ranked ninth on the all-time rejections list with 87. His six blocks against UT-Pan American in 1984 is still tied for the fourth-best single-game performance in school history.
Chosen in the second round of the 1986 NBA Draft by Seattle, Lampley played professionally from 1986-94 spending five years in Italy, three in Spain and one in Greece.
After finishing his playing career, Lampley worked for Excel Communications in Dallas for four years as an Independent Sales Representative. He then returned to the Chicago area in 1998 to work for Frontcourt Ltd., a real estate management company in suburban Frankfort. Lampley stayed in that position until 2002 when he joined Anchor Mortgage in Chicago as a Consultant, where he remained until joining the Blue Demons.
