    Drew Slempkes enters his third season on the coaching staff at UIC, and his second as the Director of Basketball Operations -- he served as the program's Director of Student-Athlete Development during his first year on Head Coach Howard Moore's staff.

    Prior to joining the Flames, Slempkes worked from 2008-2010 with the Department of Juvenile Corrections and the SPRITE program, an outdoor educational program focused on developing pro-social skills for delinquent youth (ages 13-20) transitioning back into their communities.

    Among his duties, Slempkes facilitated ropes courses, developed educational content for Urban Week and implemented health lessons on decision making, nutrition, AODA, priorities and community development.

    Slempkes had been a coach in both track & field and boy's basketball at Madison Memorial High School (Wis.), where he helped the sophomore hoops squad to back-to-back Big 8 Conference Championships in 2008 and 2009. In 2008 his team finished runner-up in State and in 2009, they won it all.

    Slempkes, a former student manager for the Badgers while Moore was on Head Coach Bo Ryan's coaching staff, graduated from Wisconsin in 2007 with a Bachelor's degree in kinesiology and a minor in health education.
