NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Iona College men's basketball sophomore Deyshonee Much received an legislative relief waiver from the NCAA and is eligible to play in this afternoon's contest at Valparaiso. Much played his freshman campaign in 2013-14 at the University of Buffalo and enrolled at Iona this past January.
"We're excited for Deyshonne to get a jumpstart on his Iona career," said head coach Tim Cluess. "Deyshonne's length and scoring ability is a tremendous asset for us in the early season. We also hope it pays dividends for the MAAC season as he is able to prepare with a full schedule of non-conference contests."
Much averaged 6.6 minutes per game in 22 contests for the Bulls two seasons ago. He scored 27 total points, grabbed 15 rebounds with eight assists, four steals and two blocks. Much has practiced with the Maroon & Gold since his enrollment in the spring 2015 semester.
The Gaels take on Valparaiso at 2:00 pm ET in their 2015-16 season opener. The game can be seen live on ESPN3 or heard on IonaInsider.com.
