NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State already has two players that were named to All-Missouri Valley Conference teams, and the Demons added a third Monday.

Missouri State transfer Isaac Haney signed with the Demons after being voted to the MVC All-Freshman team this past season.

Haney played 16 minutes per game in his 32 appearances, averaging 3.6 points and 2.4 rebounds per game while shooting 33 percent from 3-point range.

“Haney is a person that is beyond committed, and he’s a compelled individual on and off the court,” said NSU coach Corey Gipson, who served on Missouri State’s staff for the past seven seasons. “He and his family have always gone above and beyond the call of duty for every program they’ve been involved with.

“Haney will immediately emerge as a spark plug as a two-way player who never takes a play off.”

The 6-foot-2, 176-pound guard scored in double digits twice as a freshman with a career-high 18 points against Evangel (Mo.) on 4-4 3-point shooting to go along with 10 points against Little Rock.

The West Plains, Mo., product was a Class 6A all-stater at Kickapoo High, who averaged nearly 18 points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals per game as a senior.

Haney helped Kickapoo to the 6A state title, the largest class in Missouri, to cap a career in which he scored 3,141 points (fourth-most in Missouri history).

At Class 1A Dora High, he averaged 31 points per game as he led his team to a 32-2 overall record and a state title as a junior.

Haney was a two-time Class 1A Player of the Year.

He played his summer ball with AAU club Yanders Law under coach Robert Yanders.
