Men’s Basketball: A family reunion at the Final Four; Jones will coach in College All-Star Game against his brother


By: Matthew Doherty

The 2017-2018 season may have ended three weeks ago for Boston University, but Joe Jones still has one more game to coach.

The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced Tuesday that Jones was selected to coach the West All-Stars in the 2018 Reese’s College All-Star Game. The game will be played Friday, March 30th, at the Alamodome in San Antonio as part of Final Four weekend.

However, the unique experience doesn’t end there. Jones will be facing off against his older brother James, the head coach at Yale, who was chosen to coach the East All-Stars by the NABC.

The 2018 College All-Star Game is scheduled to tip-off at 4:35 p.m. EST and can be seen live on CBS Sports Network. The game features two 10-man rosters comprised of Division 1 seniors.

Joe Jones, who just completed his seventh year at BU, has an all-time record of 122-102 with the Terriers. Meanwhile, James, the longest tenured coach in the Ivy League, just wrapped up his 19th season at the helm in New Haven. He is the program’s all-time leader in wins with 288.
