Those Glorious 9 Games

"We want to thank Jeronne for his contributions to the team while he was here and wish him the best of luck in the future," coach Buzz Williams

Truer words have never been spoken. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, will forget the contributions of the great Jeronne Maymon. Here's the top 5 moments of Maymon's illustrious Marquette career:

5) Maymon scores 4 points in a tight victory over Maryland-Eastern Shores. I mean, if he didn't hit those two buckets, MU only wins by 22. Clutch.

4) Who could forget that one time Jeronne brought his school books home and actually studied? Academic probation? No chance.

3) Maymon shows efficiency against UW-Milwaukee by going 4-4 with 8 points and 4 fouls in only 13 minutes of action. Maybe he has a future in the Horizon League? Hmmmmmmm.

2) During a trip to Kopps with the fellas, Jeronne shows serious dedication by settling for a triple scoop of chocolate fudge custard instead of the usual 4 scooper.

1) Heading back to the Kohl Center, Maymon excites the hometown crowd by scoring 4 points, grabbing 5 boards, setting a bunch of nice screens, and shooting 2-6 from the charity stripe. Yes, this was the highlight of the Jeronne Maymon era at Marquette.

P.S. Please stay away from Vander Blue! Thanks.

  1. He lasted longer than Mbakwe did with Buzz.

    I read that Maymon's dad might be planning a press conference, which would be outstanding.
