Nicklas Jonsson, the 6'4 point guard out of Denmark has accepted an athletic scholarship to attend Lander University. Nicklas will begin his freshmen season in August 2016. The Lander University coaching staff is very excited to sign Nicklas. They see him as a potential impact freshmen. At 6'4 he can play both guard spots and his experience in the top Danish basketball league will make him a great asset. Nicklas spent one season with Global Squad where he helped the Gold Dragons to their best record in program history. The team went 16-4 and took home one AAU Championship in Baltimore, Maryland. Nicklas' high basketball IQ was a huge factor in the teams success. He finished 2nd on the team in assists and shot an impressive 47% from the field. Nicklas is such a team oriented player but still had his share of individual highlights with Global Squad. This included a season high 13 points vs Team Loaded. Nicklas was also an all-around force vs Constitution High School when he tallied 11 points, 12 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks. In the Elevate Hoops Tournament, Nicklas showed he can play against some of the best high school players in the world. Nicklas was a beast in crunch time of the semi-finals. This earned him interest from many NCAA coaches, including Southern Connecticut State University, Harcum College, and Menlo University. After all was said and done, Nicklas chose to accept the offer from Lander University. He will be playing in one of the most competitive NCAA D-II conferences in the United States. It will provide a great challenge for Nicklas, but he is more than capable of taking it head on. Courtesy of: abasketballacademy.com

SAN DIEGO - Ryan Looney , who recently completed his seventh season as head men's basketball coach at Seattle Pacific, has accepted the same position at Point Loma Nazarene. The announcement was made Tuesday morning by Point Loma athletic director Ethan Hamilton.
Looney departs as SPU's third all-time winningest coach with a 164-51 record. His winning ratio of 76.3 percent is the best in school history.
During his tenure, the Falcons won at least 20 games each year and made NCAA Division II Tournament appearances all seven seasons. He was a two-time Great Northwest Athletic Conference Coach of the Year after leading his team to league regular-season titles in both 2010 and 2014. He also guided the Falcons to three straight GNAC Tournament Championships (2013-15).
"Ryan Looney has put his successful imprint on a distinguished SPU men's basketball history," said SPU interim athletic director Tom Box. "Ryan's seven years included successive trips to the NCAA with student-athletes who also excelled in the classroom.
"We are grateful for Ryan and Julianna's family and the friendships we have built with them. Our best wishes are extended to them as they depart for San Diego."
Looney had great success in student-athlete development both on and off the court. The Falcons received three consecutive Team Academic Excellence Awards from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), with the latest in July 2015.
SPU compiled an impressive 3.41 combined grade point average and, for the fifth consecutive season, earned the GNAC trophy for posting the top GPA among the league's men's basketball teams. That figure was the highest in the conference for a men's team in any sport in 2014-15.
Looney coached David Downs (2014) and Chris Banchero (2010) to GNAC Player of the Year honors, in addition to leading his team to exhibition wins over NCAA Division I opponents Arizona, Nevada and Eastern Washington.
"I am so thankful for the opportunity that I was given to lead the men's basketball program at Seattle Pacific University," Looney said. "Our teams experienced a tremendous amount of success on the court, but I am more proud of how our student-athletes grew off of it. Our players have been great ambassadors for SPU."
Prior to joining SPU, Looney coached at his alma mater of Eastern Oregon University. As a coach, he led the Mountaineers to back-to-back NAIA Tournament appearances and their first conference title in 38 years.
Looney graduated from EOU in 1998 and earned his Master's degree in sports administration from Wisconsin-LaCrosse in 2001. He is married to Julianna, and the couple has two children, daughter Peyton and son Micah.
Looney will become the 14th coach in the history of the Point Loma men's basketball program.
