As a student-athlete at the University of Minnesota, Trent Tucker led the men's Gopher basketball team to the 1982 Big Ten Championship. He then played for the NY Knicks for 9 seasons and finished his career in the NBA with the Chicago Bulls, earning a Championship title in 1993. Since retiring from the NBA in 1993, Trent became a “broadcast analyst” for the Minnesota Timberwolves for five years and he can now be heard on KFAN, Minneapolis Radio. Tucker has been very active in the Minnesota communities for over 20 years. He founded a basketball camp (named after him) and in 1998, formed his nonprofit foundation now called the All 4 Kids Foundation. In 2001, he started The Trent Tucker University Scholars Program which provides at-risk youth with the tools necessary to develop academically, mentally and socially through tutoring and mentoring programs. Many of these students not only have graduated from high school, but also attend private and public colleges throughout the country. In 2004, Tucker returned to the University of Minnesota to complete his undergraduate degree, graduating in 2006. Since 2013, Tucker has served as the Athletic Director of the Minneapolis Public Schools.
