A native of Appleton, Wisconsin, DeMarco graduated from Dominican in 2009 with his business degree and in 2011 with his Master of Business Administration degree. He was a power forward for the Penguins and led Dominican to a winning record (16-13) in 2008-09.
DeMarco averaged a team-high 14.9 points per game on .544 shooting. He started all 29 games and led the California Pacific Conference with 9.6 rebounds per game, which was nearly a pair higher than any other player in the conference and 16th best in the nation.
For his efforts, DeMarco garnered NAIA Div. II All-America Honorable Mention.
This season, DeMarco will begin his seventh year in the Warriors’ organization. This past summer he coached the Bahamas’ men’s national team.
The Tip-Off dinner will also feature Dominican alumni basketball highlights. In celebration of Penguins’ students and in the spirit of engagement, each table will also include seating for a student-athlete, member of the coaching staff and/or representative of the athletic department.
