Claremont is not known as a basketball town. It does, however, have its own basketball dynasty, with 3 noted coaches hailing from the City of Trees.
It started with Lowell Rice, who coached basketball at Claremont High School from 1983 to 1993, ending his run by guiding the Wolfpack to a Baseline League Championship.
Lowell’s sons, Dave and Grant, both of whom attended CHS and played for the Pack, have gone on to follow in his footsteps, taking a family passion to even greater heights. Dave is head basketball coach for the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, above.
