Queen's University head coach Bart Lundy joins the Basketball Podcast to discuss how to run boot camps and to create margins.
Bart Lundy enters the ninth season of his second stint at the Queen’s University of Charlotte, and his 14th year overall, as the winningest coach in Queens Basketball history. After leading his team to a sixth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance in 2020-21, Lundy holds a record at Queens of 303-99 (.754 win pct.) and an overall coaching record of 399-186 (.682 win pct.) in 19 seasons as a head coach in NCAA Division I and Division II.
Lundy first took over the Queen’s program at the age of 25 after helping then-head coach Dale Layer as an assistant for two years. In his first stint as head coach (1998-2003), Lundy took the Royals to their first regional title and Elite Eight appearance in 2001 and followed the success with a trip to the national semifinals in 2003. Three times in the five-year span Lundy’s teams set the school record for wins in a season.
In his 11 years leading the Royals, Lundy has guided Queens to all four of its Elite Eight appearances, eight NCAA Tournament berths, five conference regular-season titles, and two conference tournament titles. Lundy was also named Conference Carolinas Coach of the Year in 2000-2001, Southeast Region Coach of the Year in 2003, and has coached one National Player of the Year, three conference players of the year, 13 first-team all-conference selections, and all seven All-Americans in program history. Under Lundy’s direction, from Nov. 24, 2015 – Dec. 31, 2019, Queens spent 65 consecutive weeks ranked in the coaches’ poll (1,498 days), the longest such streak in program history.
Lundy returned to Queens after a one-year stint at The University of North Texas (2012-13), where he served as an assistant to first-year head coach Tony Benford and helped develop first-round NBA draft pick, Tony Mitchell. Prior to North Texas, Lundy coached at Marquette University where he assisted head coach Buzz Williams for three years (2009-2012). In that time, Marquette made three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and two-straight Sweet 16 appearances with a roster that featured eight future NBA players including All-Star Jimmy Butler and Jae Crowder of the Miami Heat.
