Lili Thompson is currently a course director for PGC. She attended her first PGC session as a sophomore in high school with Director Chad Songy and (then) Basket Instructors Marke Freeman and Dustin Aubert. Since then, Lili has remained involved with PGC and passionate about SCHAPE’ing herself and her environment.
Lili spent her college career playing and loving basketball at two of the nations top universities: Stanford University (2013-2016) and the University of Notre Dame (2017/2018).
At Stanford, Lili enjoyed success as a team captain, All-Pac 12 Freshman team selection, two-time All-Pac 12 team selection, and two-time ESPN Player of the Week. In her three-year tenure, her Stanford teams attended the Sweet 16, Elite 8, and Final Four. They also snapped UConn’s 47-game winning streak in 2014. In Lili’s junior year, she became the programs 36th 1,000-point scorer.
At Notre Dame, Lili enjoyed her short tenure as a graduate student-transfer, leading the team in assists per game before her season ended with an ACL tear to her right knee. Her ACL rehab and recovery is the next challenge that she’s meeting head-on with the same attitude that she approached the basketball court with.
As the youngest of six kids raised by two Army veterans, Lili’s life has always had a focus on discipline and academic excellence. At Stanford, Lili studied Science, Technology, and Society and received her Bachelor of Arts in Organizations and Innovation. At Notre Dame, Lili received her Master of Science in Business Management.
Lili has always been passionate about helping young athletes pursue their dreams, and she feels that her experience at the top levels of basketball will be an added benefit to the athletes that work with her. Lili looks forward to bringing energy, joy, passion, and precision to PGC sessions this summer and for many to come.
