Lamont “MoMo” Jones: A Name You Will Know Come March

Jump to Comments

Top recruits usually don’t play basketball at Iona. Lamont “MoMo” Jones is an exception. A former top recruit from Oak Hill Academy, MoMo committed to Arizona. Jones played two seasons in Tucson and averaged 9.6 points per game his sophomore year. Instead of returning to Arizona for a junior year, Jones transferred. He wanted to be closer to his family. Jones ended up choosing Iona, and boy are the Gales happy he did. Jones has the Gaels thinking NCCA Tourney this year as he is averaging 16.2 points per game this season. The Gaels are 22-6 and are a team to watch come tournament time. The scary thing is that Jones is not even the leading scorer on his team. Senior Michael Glover is averaging 18.5 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.. March Madness is closing coming upon us and we all know anything can happen. With senior leadership like Glover and NBA type talent in junior Lamont Jones, Iona is a team that could not only just pull an upset or two, but have a legitiment chance to make a deep run that could land them a VCU or Mason type run.
