A Conversation with Mr. Basketball - Part 1
Jerrone Maymon is Eager to Wear the Marquette Uniform
By Rick Rietbrock
Jeronne Maymon has accomplished plenty already. He's been named the Associated Press player of the year two straight seasons and Wisconsin's Mr. Basketball by the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association. The 6-7 senior forward averaged 17.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.1 steals this year, leading Madison Memorial to a 26-1 record. Now he's ready to take on another challenge - to make an impact in the Big East with Marquette next season. In part one, Maymon met up with TODAY'S TMJ4's Rod Burks in Madison to talk about winning the state championship and wearing a Marquette uniform next fall.
