Cal Poly Alums Dynn, Lynn Leaupepe Star as Pros Overseas

KASTRUP, Denmark and SUNBURY, Australia — Cal Poly alumni Dynn and Lynn Leaupepe are each starring as rookies overseas, playing their debut pro basketball seasons in Denmark and Australia.

Dynn Leaupepe, now with Basketball Klubben Amager in the Copenhagen suburb, recently finished her year winning the 2019 Dameligaen Player of the Year accolade, after leading her club to the Danish title, 3-1 in a five-game series over Stevnsgade.

Dynn averaged 25.2 points, 9.7 rebounds and 3.8 steals for the season, and shot 50.3 percent overall, as well as .821 from the free-throw line, as BK Amager went 19-8 overall, ultimately winning the decisive finals game 75-69 on May 4.

Leaupepe went 5-for-8 en route to 20 points, 13 rebounds and six assists in the title-clinching matchup, as her squad prevailed over a 33-point effort from former Oakland star Taylor Gleason of Nørrebro. BK Amager, founded in 1976, is coached by Lars Klussmann and plays at Tåtnby Gymnasium.

Meanwhile Lynn Leaupepe is currently starring for the Sunbury Jets in Victoria, averaging 21.6 points on 60.9-percent shooting, 6.6 rebounds and 2.6 steals while helping the Jets jump out to a 5-2 overall start in the SBA.

Sunbury, coached by Kennedy Kereama, trains at Boardman Stadium just over 25 miles northwest of Melbourne.

The Jets continue their 22-game regular-season schedule into late July.

Dynn Leaupepe ranked No. 20 nationally in scoring as a Mustang senior, also leading the Big West in steals per game and free-throw percentage. Lynn Leaupepe graduated as the No. 5 rebounder in school history and was a three-time conference player of the week between 2017 and 2018.

Together in 2018, the Leaupepe twins (from Camarillo, Calif.), led Cal Poly to a second-place finish in the conference standings and a trip to the Big West Tournament Semifinals at Honda Center.
