Kirk Penney is is a professional basketball player from New Zealand who is currently at shooting guard for New Zealand Breakers in the NBL.
After playing high school basketball at Westlake Boys High School in New Zealand, and playing three seasons in New Zealand's National Basketball League, he played college basketball in the United States at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from 1999 through 2003. Penney was named first-team All-Big Ten during his junior and senior seasons and an honorable mention All-American during his senior season, and also played in the 2000 Final Four. He also starred with his country's national team, the Tall Blacks, notably at the 2002 World Championships as they surprisingly finished fourth.
He is a gunner and doesn't make bad discisions.
His issue is quickness in defense ,, but experience can help , and considering he has played 4 years out side of college ball means he is serious about making the NBA.
Surprised he never went to Euro - and made a killing in cash.
