BH-BL grad Jeff Juron joins Skidmore baskeball staff

Skidmore College men’s basketball coach Luke Flockerzi announced the appointment of two former players, Ryan Fischer and Jeff Juron, as assistant coaches for the 2009-10season.

Juron played under Coach Flockerzi at the University of Rochester and begins coaching after spending last season playing for BC Vlijmscherp in the Netherlands.

Fischer, who played collegiately at Skidmore, returns to Saratoga Springs after spending the past season as an assistant coach at Polytechnic University in Brooklyn, NY.

Juron joins the Thoroughbred staff after graduating from Rochester in 2008. During his time on the River Campus he was a four-starter on three NCAA Division III tournament teams. In 2005, he helped lead the Yellowjackets to a national runner-up performance. He was recognized four times as Honorable Mention All-University Athletic Association. A Burnt Hills native, Juron played his high school ball at Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake where he led them to a Section II Class A championship.

Fischer graduated from Skidmore in 2008 with a degree in Business and Management. He had a strong finish to his playing career, starting every game as a senior, leading the Liberty League in assist-to-turnover ratio and finishing third in assists per game.

At Polytechnic, Fischer’s duties included recruiting, individual player development and off-season workout planning. He has also worked in the Community Relations and Field Marketing departments for the New York Knicks since 2006. He was involved in planning and implementing different events and camps for the Knicks organization. In addition, Fischer is the founder and director of Overtime Hoops, a youth basketball organization that specializes in weekend clinics and individual skill development.
