The Santa Barbara Basketball Court of Champions has announced former Westmont coaches and student-athletes will be among 17 inductees comprising the class of 2015. Former coaches Chet Kammerer and Randy Pfund will be inducted alongside former student-athletes Ron Shelton and Tugce Canitez.
This year’s inductees join John Moore and Kirsten Moore, current head coaches for Westmont Men’s and Women’s Basketball respectively, who were inducted into the Court of Champions last year in its inaugural class.
Kammerer coached Westmont Men’s Basketball for 17 years from 1975 to 1992, accumulating a record of 357-158 (.693). During that span he led the Warriors to five NAIA National Championship appearances. During the 1984 campaign, the Warriors reached the semifinals for the first time in school history.
Kammerer left Westmont in 1992 to join Pfund on the Los Angeles Lakers coaching staff. In 1996, he began scouting for the Miami Heat where he currently serves as the vice president of player personnel. After the remodel of Murchison Gymnasium in 2008, the floor was named “Kammerer Court” in his honor.
