Lance Randall has had a wide-ranging career both playing and coaching basketball in the United States and abroad. He spent four successful seasons coaching the Saint Leo basketball team from 2011-2015. After leaving for another job, he quickly realized he missed the tightknit Saint Leo University community and opportunity to coach in the highly competitive Sunshine State Conference (SSC) at the Division II level. That is why he returned to Saint Leo in 2019, and he has brought back much of the success his men’s teams enjoyed during his first stint at the helm of the Lions.

In this episode of the Saint Leo 360 podcast, we hit the basketball court with Randall. During the conversation, he talked about:

  • His early years growing up in the Midwest
  • His college career playing basketball and a memorable time in which he got to play with Michael Jordan at a summer camp in the 1990s
  • What led him into coaching and his early coaching career with stints around the world
  • Arriving at Saint Leo University and his first successful run as head men’s basketball coach
  • Why he returned to Saint Leo after leaving for four years
  • His current coaching staff and how they all work together
  • Memorable basketball seasons and outstanding student-athletes he has coached
  • The characteristics he looks for when recruiting players to come play for the Saint Leo Lions men’s basketball program
  • The benefits of attending Saint Leo University and playing Division II athletics in the competitive Sunshine State Conference (SSC)
  • How student-athletes can effectively balance athletics and academics
  • Professional opportunities for talented college basketball players
