2015-16: Redshirted.NOTRE DAME COLLEGE PREP '15: Averaged 20 points, five rebounds and four assists per game as a senior... Accolades earned during his final year at Notre Dame College Prep include: Chicago Tribune first team, Chicago Sun-Times All-Area, all-state third team, East Suburban Catholic Conference Player of the Year... Led his team to a berth in the 4A state semifinals during his senior season... Teammates selected him as their captain for the 2014-15 season... Shot 46 pct. from distance and 83 percent from the stripe as a senior... Shortly after receiving first team all-area accolades from Pioneer Sports, Mooney, a Magna Cum Laude graduate, received an invitation to compete in the Chicago Catholic League All-Star Game... In that showcase, he scored 25 points for his East squad.
PERSONAL: One of Angela and Michael Mooney's five children... Daniel and Matt are his older brothers, Mary Kate and Rachel are his younger sisters... If he could play another sport at UC Davis, he would choose baseball... Watching movies, bowling and playing table tennis are his hobbies... Chose UC Davis because of the players, coaches, outstanding academic programs, the team and school's culture.
Kudos to Aggies;
I'm lovin' my new home
