Lance Russell

Lance Russell loves basketball. If he's not playing, you can bet he's watching.

 

The latest Wizard addition was born and raised in Wellington, Kan., and has lived in Wichita the last 23 years. Those decades saw Lance growing up playing basketball, in fact, he says he has "played my entire life." In high school, Russell was selected for the All CTL team (1993), and garnered an All-State honorable mention.

 

After graduation, his life took a bit of a turn, but just a short lived one to a very different field. Russell went to Fort Hays State on a football scholarship, but then quickly transferred to Emporia State and earned his bachelor's degree in Business Administration.

 

Since then, it's been basketball, family and faith for Russell. His three daughters are central to his every decision. And we're very glad that his latest decision has been to join the Wizards family!
