EPISODE 65- D’ANGELO to JONES inside to TORRES for the JAM!

2015_MSUmBB-PODCAST-Black James D’Angelo, Kazim Jones, & Chris Torres represent the senior class for Head Coach Daren Rowe. As a point guard, D’Angelo rarely commits turnovers over & is considered a strong passer. Despite his 5′-10″ frame, the Long Valley, NJ native has proved to be assertive with the basketball, driving to the lane when needed.

In  his NCAA career, Kazim Jones has come of the bench to help the Red Hawks as a swingman guard & forward. The Newark, NJ native is one of the most coachable players on the roster. Each season he has added strength & quickness. Jones is described as a positive role model to the underclassmen & never complains! 

Chris Torres is a player who comes off the bench as a power forward.  When an opponent gains momentum against Montclair State, everyone at the Panzer Gymnasium knows who will enter the contest to show the Red Hawks refuse to be intimated! With a 6′-4″ frame, Chris creates opportunities by his aggressive approach on the floor, always relentless, never intimidated by the opposition. 

Go Red Hawks!
