Connor Looney

Connor Looney of Palmer is the ultimate two-way terror for the Hawaii Pacific University men’s basketball team, and his performance in a 91-79 win over BYU-Hawaii emphasized that point.

The 6-foot-2 senior guard scored 17 points and made three 3-pinters and two steals – the 10th time in 20 games this season that he has had at least two 3s and two steals in one game.

Looney, of Palmer High fame, has collected 101 career steals in 94 games.

He ranks fifth in the Pac West Conference with a .500 field-goal percentage and seventh in the league with a .821 free-throw percentage.

Looney ranks ninth in the Pac West at 16.0 points per game – twice his 8.4 career scoring average.
