Seton Hall Point Guard Signs with InterperformancesUSA
WARREN, NJ, May 16, 2017 – Madison Jones, the court general that led the Seton Hall Pirates this past season, has chosen InterperformancesUSA (IPZ) for representation, the company announced today.
The 6-foot-2 point guard began his collegiate career at Wake Forest University which is under two hours away from his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina. Jones broke into the starting lineup as a freshman. In all three seasons with the Demon Deacons, Jones consistently found himself in the top two for the team’s most assists and steals (he was first in this category twice). As a junior, he ranked among the ACC leaders with a 1.6 assist-to-turnover ratio.
Jones transferred to Seton Hall University for the 2016-17 season and played in all 33 contests, starting 31 of them. His 58 steals led the Pirates and were third best in the Big East. Jones topped The Hall in both assists (104, ninth in the Big East) and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.6, eighth in the Big East). Called the “head” by teammates, Jones led the Pirates to their second consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance.
“I am so happy to be a part of the IPZ family,” said Jones. “I have dreamed about being a professional basketball player since I was a young boy. I can’t thank God enough for this amazing opportunity.”
“Meeting Madison and his parents during this process was rewarding for me,” said Robert Zito, Managing Partner of IPZ. “Madison comes from a great family with dedicated parents and siblings who are serving our country. His leadership on the court at Seton Hall was exemplary. And his relationship with a great coach and staff, phenomenal. I’m thrilled we have the opportunity to work with him.”
