Dean Meminger's Biography

Dean Peter Meminger (born May 13, 1948, in Walterboro, South Carolina) is an American basketball player and coach. Meminger starred at Rice High School in New York City. He attended Marquette University, where he played for coach Al McGuire. He helped Marquette win the 1970 National Invitational Tournament. Marquette's 1970 team was ranked 8th in the country at the time and was inivted to the NCAA tournament, which it turned down, for a better NIT bid. The NCAA was so incensed by Marquette that it instituted a rule which forced an NCAA Division I team to accept an NCAA bid over an NIT bid. A subsequent antitrust case brought by the NIT against the NCAA over this issue was later settled out of court. Dean was also the MVP in the 1970 National Invitation Tournament National Championship Game. Dean was drafted in the first round (number 16 overall) of the 1971 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks, where he played from 1971 to 1974 and 1976-1977. Meminger played for the Atlanta Hawks from 1974 to 1976.
