For the third straight year, UCLA will lose a freshman to the NBA. This time, it’s Kevon Looney.

On Monday, the school announced what so many had expected — that Looney, a second-team All-Pac-12 selection, will enter the 2015 NBA draft.

“This was a really tough decision for me because there were so many positives both ways,” Looney said in a statement. “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 and make the transition to the next level.”
