He led the Jaguars in both scoring and rebounding in each of his final three seasons and also is tied for fifth in career steals (165). Following his IUPUI playing career, Carlisle enjoyed an 11-year professional playing career, including a long stay in France and stints in Sweden, Australia and throughout the U.S..

An Indianapolis-native, Carlisle completed his degree requirements in 2008 while assisting the IUPUI coaching staff in player development. Carlisle becomes the 15th former men's basketball player to earn induction into the IUPUI Hall of Fame.
