Stephane Lasme (born December 17, 1982, in Port-Gentil, Gabon) is a Gabonese professional basketball player. He has played in the NBA and its affiliate league, the D-League. Lasme played NCAA college basketball at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) and he was selected by the Golden State Warriors in the second round, 46th overall, in the 2007 NBA Draft. In July of 2009 he signed with pro club Maccabi Tel Aviv[2].


High school and college basketball

Lasme attended Collège Raponda Walker, Leon MBA, in Port-Gentil.[1] Lasme's senior year at UMass was filled with personal accomplishments, records, and team success. Lasme was named a 2006–07 AP Honorable Mention All American, 2006–07 Atlantic 10 Player of the Year, and 2006–07 Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the Year. Lasme holds the UMass record for career blocked shots and single season blocked shots, setting both his senior season passing Marcus Camby on both lists. Lasme averaged 13.5 points per game, 9.5 rebounds per game, and 5.1 blocks per game his senior year while leading UMass into the NIT.

In 2007, Lasme tied an NCAA record of four triple doubles during a season.[3] Lasme joins Jason Kidd (1994 at Cal) and Michael Anderson (1986 at Drexel) as the only college players to tally four triple doubles in a single season. While Kidd and Anderson accomplished the feat by achieving double figures in scoring, rebounds, and assists, Lasme's triple doubles are in scoring, rebounds, and blocks. His 4 triple doubles were:

  • vs. St. Francis on 22 November (19 pts, 10 reb, 11 blocks);
  • vs. George Washington on 10 January (23 pts, 15 reb, 11 blocks);
  • vs. Rhode Island (18 pts, 12 reb, 11 blocks) on 8 February and
  • vs. La Salle on 28 February (17 pts, 10 reb, 10 blocks).

Pro career


In June 2007, Lasme was selected in the second round, 46th overall in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors. He played only 4 seconds of game time with the Warriors. On November 17, 2007, Lasme was waived by the Warriors.[4] In November 2007, he was signed by the NBA Development League's Los Angeles D-Fenders.[5] On March 21, 2008, he was signed to a 10-day contract by the Miami Heat[6][7] whose roster had been depleted by injuries.[8] In 16 games (four starts), he averaged 5.2 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.38 blocks and 18.9 minutes, but was waived in the off-season, in September 2008.[6]


On September 21, 2008, Lasme signed with the Euroleague club Partizan Belgrade for the 2008–09 season.[9][10] After three games in the competition, he was second in Euroleague in both blocks and rebounds per game.[11] Lasme finished his first season with Partizan averaging 10.7 pts, 6.6 rebs, and 1.48 blocks in 24.7 min/game. He was instrumental in helping the team to another NLB League championship and a strong showing in Euroleague 2008–09 that ended in the quarterfinals with a loss to CSKA Moscow.

In summer 2009, he moved to the Israeli League club Maccabi Tel Aviv.[12]
