Quincy Lewis was born in Little Rock, Ark., but he has found a home in Minnesota. The former Golden Gopher forward remains heavily involved with his alma mater, currently working with the Golden Gopher Fund. He enjoyed seeing his fellow alumni at Gopher All-Star Friday Night on Oct. 14. That is where Gophersports.com caught up with him for the video found above.
Lewis was a 1999 All-Big Ten selection.
Lewis finished his career (1995-99) in sixth place on Minnesota's all-time scoring list. His senior year scoring average of 23.1 points per game helped him reach a career total of 1,614 points. He earned All-Big Ten honors that season after leading the conference in scoring, in addition to leading the Gophers in three-point field goals, free throws, and steals.
After graduation, Lewis played four seasons in the NBA with the Jazz and the Timberwolves. He also spent six years playing in Europe. He has been working with the Golden Gopher Fund since summer of 2010, and is working on his Master's degree in sport management.
