UB men’s basketball will be losing their breakout star from the 2022-23 season.
After spending the last few weeks in the transfer portal, sophomore guard Curtis Jones announced Monday night via social media that he will be playing for Iowa State next season. Jones’ announcement makes him the fourth UB player to transfer to another school since Jim Whitesell was fired on March 11.
After spending the 2021-22 as a backup point guard for the Bulls, Jones started in 2022-23 and made the most of it.
Jones finished the regular season with an average of 15.1 points per game, making him UB’s lead scorer and the 14th best in the MAC.
This won’t be Jones’ first time in Iowa. The Minnesota native started off his college career at Indian Hills Community College after receiving zero Division I offers out of high school.
Jones will look to contribute to an Iowa State team that recently made the NCAA Tournament as a no. 6 seed.
