Harry  Lundy

Harry Lundy is only the second Lafayette basketball player to have more than 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in his three-year career (freshmen were not eligible for varsity competition). Lundy's total of 1,180 career points currently puts him 14th all time. His 1,064 rebounds rank him among the college's best.

A powerful 6'5 center from Camp Hill, PA, Lundy led the team in scoring for two seasons and rebounding for three. His best averages were at 18.5 points as a junior and 18.2 rebounds as a senior, when he was ranked fourth in the nation in rebounding. A team captaion, he was selected All-Middle Atlantic Conference in both seasons. Among Chip's treasured memories was a 30-point 20-rebound effort in a 82-59 win over American International his senior year. Another is being named to the All-Opponent Team of the Philadelphia Big Five following Lafayette's first ever win in the Palestra earlier that season. A top performer for the Leopards' track and field team, Lundy's 210-foot, eight-inch javelin throw once held the Lafayette and Middle Atlantic Conference record. He was awarded the Class of 1913 Trophy for being the top senior athlete, and the Pepper Prize for being "Lafayette's ideal" in leadership and citizenship.
