Bart Lundy is entering the seventh season of his second stint at Queens University of Charlotte, and his 12th year overall, as the winningest coach in Queens Basketball history. After leading his team to a third consecutive 30-win season in 2018-2019, Lundy holds a record at Queens of 263-86 (.754 win pct.) and an overall coaching record of 359-173 (.675 win pct.) in 17 seasons as a head coach in NCAA Division I and Division II.
Lundy first took over the Queens 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 that success with a trip to the national semifinals in 2003.
Lundy began his coaching career at Winthrop University where he graduated with a Master of Arts (1998).
Bart coached at High Point University where he served as head coach for six seasons from 2003-2009, taking over the program at the age of 31 making him the second youngest Division I head coach in the country. In his first year, Lundy was named the 2004 NCAA Division I National Rookie Coach of the Year.
Lundy then coached at Marquette University in Milwaukee 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 of the Miami Heat and Jae Crowder of the Memphis Grizzlies.
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.
In addition to success on the court, Bart has graduated 90 percent of his student-athletes who finished their eligibility, with 100 percent on track to graduate entering their final season.
