Class of 2012
Hometown: Hanover, MA
AAU: Middlesex Magic
Considering: NE-10 - Patriot - NESCAC
- From Middlesex Magic Summer Recap..."This ballplayer may have been the Magic Breakout Player of the Summer in terms of college coaches taking notice. Mahoney was the leader of the team and he stepped up on both ends of the court this entire Summer. In Orlando, he exploded for back to back 25 point scoring outbursts where he was deadly from 3-pt range, scored the ball from the post when he had a good match-up, and also used the bounce to take the ball to the basket or get into his mid-range pull up game. Mahoney has also showed that he is a tremendous rebounder from the SF position and that he can defend both forward positions at the defensive end. Coming into the Summer, Mahoney was viewed primarily as a NESCAC prospect, but times have changed, and Mahoney is now drawing Patriot and NE-10 attention. In terms of intangibles, and Connor Mahoney as a young man, Mike Crotty Jr. didn't hold back his praise, "In addition to his great basketball IQ and leadership, you get one of the most reliable players and people I have ever had the chance to be around. He is an instant positive addition to any college program on and off the court.""
