The Golden State Warriors selected UCLA forward Kevon Looney (keh-VON LOO-nee) with the 30th overall pick in the first round of the 2015 NBA Draft, the team announced.

Looney, 19, tallied averages of 11.6 points, 9.2 rebounds (second in the Pac-12), 1.4 assists and 1.28 steals in 30.9 minutes over 36 games as a freshman at UCLA in 2014-15, earning Second Team All-Pac-12 and Pac-12 All-Freshman Team accolades. Looney (6’9”, 220) led all freshmen in the nation with 15 double-doubles, setting career-highs with 27 points and 19 rebounds in a win over Stanford on Jan. 8 en route to a Pac-12 Player of the Week honors.

A native of Milwaukee, Wis., Looney was a McDonald’s All-American at Hamilton High School in Milwaukee.

The league’s annual selection process is taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., with the Warriors’ basketball operations staff working from the team’s draft headquarters in downtown Oakland.
