Marquette Prospect Sparkles In IS8 League

Reporter Mike Sullivan had an opportunity to watch Jeronne Maymon at IS8 in South Jamaica, New York on a few occasions. Maymon competed for Torrel Harris' Unique All Stars in the Fall League ...

Torrel Harris couldn't have asked for anything more in having Marquette prospect Jeronne Maymon with his Unique All Stars. Maymon was outstanding and showed he is one of the top catches in the 2009 class by the Big East program.

"He's some player," Harris said.

In the pool version of the IS8 League, the 6-foot-7 forward collected 45 points, 30 rebounds and handed out 14 assists in two games.

The Unique All Stars finished up with a 3-1 pool record. They advanced to the quarterfinals against the Playaz Seniors team and Jeronne was outstanding again.

Maymon dropped in 27 points and was all over the court in helping keep his team in the game. Jeronne did this against a frontline of Brian Oliver (Georgia Tech), Dominic Cheek (still open), and Chris Gaston (Fordham). Jeronne showed he has the ability to sprint for loose balls and also dribble himself out of trouble.

"I had a good time," Maymon said after the game. "I'm looking forward now to the high school season. Then it's on to Marquette. I'll just try to work on my ballhandling, my shot, and my defense. I try to work on something whenever I'm practicing too."

For the fans who were fortunate enough to watch the talented prospect, every single one of them believed he would be an impact player right away for the Big East program. Maybon is from Memorial High School in Madison, Wisconsin and had many scholarship offers before he made a commitment to Marquette.
