After one season at UCLA, Kevon Looney is headed for the NBA. The University made the announcement on Monday.
The former Milwaukee Hamilton High School star averaged 11.6 points and a team-high 9.2 rebounds as a freshman at UCLA this past season. His 15 double-doubles were tops among freshmen nationally. He earned second-team all-Pac-12 honors.
“This was a really tough decision for me because there were so many positives both ways,” Looney said. “My time at UCLA has been unbelievable, and I know I’ll be a Bruin forever. But playing in the NBA is a dream I’ve had for so long, and this feels like the right time to pursue that dream.”
