Phil Lumpkin

Phil Lumpkin (December 20, 1951 – November 2, 2009) was an American professional basketball player and high school basketball coach. He was born in Dayton, Ohio.[1]

A 6'0" (1.83 m) and 165 lb (75 kg) point guard from Ohio's Miami University, Lumpkin was selected by the Portland Trail Blazers with the 34th pick of the 1974 NBA Draft, opting to play for that team instead of the Virginia Squires which selected him in the American Basketball Association draft. He played two seasons in the NBA as a member of the Blazers and Phoenix Suns, averaging 3.3 points per game.[1]

In 1991, Lumpkin became head coach of the boys' basketball program at O'Dea High School in Seattle, Washington. Between 1993 and 2007, he led the team to five 3A class state titles.[2]

Lumpkin was discovered dead on the Monday morning of November 2, 2009, shortly after being diagnosed with pneumonia. He was 57 years old.[2]
