Doug Lee rewrote most of the record book as a 3-year starter for Washington High School. His 27.0 p.p.g. during his senior year of 1982 remains a school record. That same year, Doug led the Panthers to a Mid-State 10 title and an IHSA regional championship for which he was accorded all-state honors. His 1,558 career points are 2nd highest in school history.
Playing his last two collegiate years at Purdue after a transfer from Texas A & M, Lee led the Boilermakers to consecutive NCAA appearances. During his senior year, Doug captained Purdue to a Big-Ten title. He was named Most Valuable Player by his mates and coaching staff.
Drafted by the Houston Rockets, Doug played a total of eleven professional seasons, including five NBA seasons with Houston, New Jersey and Sacramento. He is also a member of the IBCA Hall of Fame.
