Triptow was a four year letter winner; playing from 1940-1944. While at DePaul, Triptow played on legendary college basketball coach Ray Meyer’s first team in 1943 and was co-captain with future NBA star George Mikan on the 1944 team. He was named to numerous All-American teams and played a prominent role in DePaul’s second place finish in the National Invitational Tournament in Madison Square Garden in 1944, where he was named to the All-Tournament team. From 1944 to 1949, he played professional basketball in the National Basketball League and National Basketball Association as a member of the Chicago American Gears, the Tri-Cities Blackhawks, the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons, and the Baltimore Bullets. Playing alongside George Mikan, Triptow won an NBL championship with the Gears in 1947. Triptow was named to the DePaul University Basketball Hall of Fame in 1977; the Chicago Catholic League Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 1986; the Illinois Basketball Coaches association Hall of Fame in 1989; and the Chicagoland Sports Hall of Fame in 1996.

DePaul Athletic Development Sullivan Athletic Center 2323 N. Sheffield Ave. Chicago, IL 60614 773-325-7240


DePaul University is in the midst of three facility improvement projects: Cacciatore Stadium - Phase II, The Outdoor Track at Lane Stadium and the Short Game Facility for Golf at Ruffled Feathers. The three initiatives have greatly improved the training and playing experience of our student-athletes. Through the generosity of a number of donors these improvements have been completed, but we continue to fundraise to complete the funding for the projects. For more information about each project, contact Thad Dohrn at 773-325-1456.


DePaul Athletics fundraising efforts also focus on endowing scholarship and programming needs. Annually athletics spends nearly $5 million on scholarship expenses for its more than 200 student-athletes. By endowing scholarships, DePaul Athletics has the opportunity to enhance scholarships in some sports and redistribute available funding to maximize the department’s resources. A named scholarship requires a gift of $50,000. All gifts can be made in pledges over five years. Planned giving opportunities are also available. University President Fr. Dennis Holtschneider, C.M., is joined by DePaul’s NBA star Bobby Simmons and Director of Athletics Jean Lenti Ponsetto for a presentation to recognize his gift of $250,000 from The Bobby Simmons Rising Star Foundation.
