His pedigree for success is no fluke; Lance Randall has the magic touch when it comes to hoops. Hired as the 10th coach in nearly a half-century of men's basketball at Saint Leo University prior to the 2011-12 season, Randall immediately went to work breathing life into a program that had fallen into obscurity at all levels.Read Full Bio
In his debut season at Saint Leo, Randall led a resurgence in the Lions basketball program that propelled it to a first-ever NCAA Tournament berth. He inherited a team that was picked last in the Sunshine State Conference preseason poll and led it to a third-place finish in the regular-season standings with a 10-6 conference mark. Finishing the season with a 18-12 overall record, the Lions won nine consecutive games at one point, breaking a program record that dates back to 1987. The hallmark of Randall's squad is hard-nosed defense, and his Lions lead the league in scoring defense and were sixth in the nation, permitting just 58.3 points per game. Saint Leo also led the league in holding its opponents to a 39.9 percent field goal percentage and 30.6 percent three-point percentage.
His immediate and overwhelming success saw him earn SSC Coach of the Year honors in 2012, joining former athletic director and coach Norm Kaye who earned the honor in 1977, and Gary Richert who earned it twice in 1984 and 1988 as only the third coach from Saint Leo to win the award.
Two days after taking home the SSC hardware, Randall guided the Lions in the conference's Tournament Championship Game for just the program's second time. Two weeks later he was on the sidelines when Saint Leo tipped-off in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Huntsville, Ala.
Randall has a proven coaching resume on a variety of levels at both the high school and collegiate basketball ranks over the past 18 years since his time as a student-athlete at Beloit College. During his most recent stint, where he served as associate head coach at Stevens Point since 2009, Randall helped guide a squad that took home the 2010 NCAA Division III National Championship.
This program is intended to help players develop athletically. The individual camp is a great opportunity for young basketball players looking to develop and refine their fundamental basketball skills. This program also includes a curriculum for intermediate/advanced players looking to enhance their skill set at the post, wing or guard position. Emphasis is placed on fundamental development, shooting, offensive moves, defense, rebounding, team play, and more.

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.
