Hines earns start, grabs career-high 8 rebounds for Iona
For the second straight year he delivered a career-high for the Iona College men’s basketball team right around Christmas.
Ho, Ho, Hines.
The 6-foot-10 sophomore earned a rare start against Florida Gulf Coast and responded with a career-high 8 rebounds and scored 3 points – the first time he’s been in the scoring column since Nov. 26.
Hines, of Dimond High fame, played 25 minutes in his second start of the season.
“Ryden truly took a lot on his shoulders,” Iona coach Tim Cluess told reporters.
A year ago in late December, Hines scored a career-high 19 points against Northern Iowa.
He is averaging 1.9 points and 1.3 rebounds in 32 career games.
