Coach Coop

Ex-NBA player | College: University of Southern California | Hometown: Lakewood, CA

Duane Cooper attended Lakewood high school in California and is a graduate of USC where he was a stand out point guard in the late 80’s early 90’s. His outstanding play and leadership helped him become a  second round draft pick by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1992. In addition to playing for the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns respectively, he brings 11+ years of professional experience playing in countries like Venezuela and Greece just to name a few. Currently he is the head coach of Lakewood High School’s basketball program, where he took his team to the 2nd round of the play offs this past season. Coach Coop brings a wealth of experience and is a high quality and high character individual. We look forward to him helping all of our players improve and prepare for high school.
