Jackson State Men’s Basketball Coach Deron Hines reached a significant coaching milestone tonight, winning his 200th career game as a head coach. Coach Hines is in his 13th season as the Generals coach and sports a 200-113 record (.638 winning percentage). The win comes against conference opponent Volunteer State, 86-61, and marks the opening of conference play for Jackson State. ‘This is a credit to the good players that we’ve had throughout the years, a lot of which have went on to play college and professional basketball’, says Coach Hines. Congratulations to Coach Hines and the Jackson State Generals!

The event begins with an opening program at 7:45 a.m. at the gazebo in the Jackson campus’ quadrangle featuring a color guard, a song by Innovation, and JSCC President Bruce Blanding sharing some comments. It also will involve a nationwide ‘moment of silence’ at 1 p.m. to recognize the signing of the armistice ending World War I.
