Dimeco Childress (born August 19, 1980)[1] is an American former basketball player. He is known for his collegiate career at East Tennessee State University (ETSU) between 1998–99 and 2001–02. During his four years as a Buccaneer he scored 1,287 points[2] and twice led the team in scoring;[2] as a senior in 2001–02 he led the team 17.5 points per game and 75 total assists.[2] On February 16, 2002 Childress scored a career-high 42 points, good enough for the third-highest single game output in ETSU history;[2] that season, the Buccaneers went 11–5 in Southern Conference (SoCon) play, tying them for first place in the North Division.[3] The SoCon coaches selected Childress as their player of the year;[4] due to the conference's media choosing VMI's Jason Conley as their player of the year, the two players shared the award in 2001–02.[3]

After his college career ended Childress did not get selected in the 2002 NBA Draft.[5]
