Brian Charles Randle (born February 8, 1985) is an American former professional basketball player. He played college basketball at the University of Illinois.

High school career[edit]

Randle graduated from Peoria Notre Dame High School in 2003 and had an outstanding senior season averaging 22.9 points, 12.8 rebounds, 5.2 blocks and 3.1 assists. He finished fourth in voting for Illinois Mr. Basketball in his senior season, and was recruited by Bill Self. He was selected to the State Farm Holiday Classic all-tournament team in three consecutive seasons, from 2000-02.

College career[edit]

In the 2003-04 season, Randle played in 32 games – including starting 9 games. Randle averaged 2.7 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. On December 30, 2003, Randle had his best statistical game, grabbing 11 rebounds and 9 points against UIC.

He took a medical redshirt during the 2004-05 NCAA tournament run season after punching a wall in frustration during practice and breaking his hand.[1]

In the 2005-06 college basketball season, Randle was one of three team captains for the Fighting Illini, along with Dee Brown and James Augustine. Randle had his best game playing Wisconsin on the road on January 31, 2006 with a double-double. Against the Badgers, Randle scored 12 points and pulled down 13 rebounds helping the Illini to a 66-51 victory. Randle was named to the All-Big Ten Defensive Team, and ranked ninth in the Big Ten in field goal percentage.

In the 2006-07 college basketball season, Randle once again was looked to as a leader for the Fighting Illini, along with Warren Carter, Jamar Smith, Rich McBride, and Shaun Pruitt. He had an early season groin injury that caused him to miss most of the non-conference schedule.

Randle graduated with a bachelor's degree in agri-finance and a master's in sports management.[2]
