Nkrumah Jones, an alumnus of BHCC’s class of 2001, has returned to help guide the men's basketball program. Nkrumah comes to BHCC fresh off a four year run as assistant men's basketball coach at local Division III powerhouse, Salem State University (SSU). His primary duties at SSU were to recruit student-athletes, in-game coaching, and player development. During his tenure at SSU, the men’s team had an overall record of 75-36 for a winning percentage of 62 percent, along with two NCAA DIII national tournaments appearances, which included a Sweet16 run in 2008-09. Also of note, Nkrumah helped recruit NE region and MASCAC player of the year Brian Clark and 2-time MASCAC POY and SSU 5th all-time leading scorer, Dylan Holmes.
Coach Jones is very well known on the exposure camp/clinic circuit where he is an instructor/coach. Coach Jones has worked very closely with the Hoop Group- the largest youth basketball exposure/instruction camp on the East coast.
"One of my goals is to bring a National Championship to my Alma Mater while helping student-athletes graduate with a degree in a field they deem worthwhile. This will be achieved using professionalism, hard work and desire".
Nkrumah is employed by the Cambridge public school system and he is co-founder of the Greater Boston Lions youth mentorship program that offers AAU basketball to boys and girls ages 10-17. The GBL program is a perennial powerhouse in the NE area with state titles, several Final fours and over 150 members and alumni to its credit.
