Jon Rubenstein and James Thurlow

Originally from northern New Jersey, Jon Rubenstein is a recent graduate of The University of Michigan, where he spent two years as a Student Manager and Walk-On Practice Player for the Men’s Basketball team, appearing in one game for the Wolverines at the end of the 2014-15 season. After his time with the basketball program, Jon switched his focus to sports journalism, working as a host, writer, and co-producer for WOLV-TV – Michigan’s student-run TV station. Jon was also a part of the Big Ten Network’s Student U program, where he served as a Play-By-Play announcer for several Michigan sporting events, including Men’s Basketball, Women’s Basketball, Men’s Gymnastics, Baseball, and Men’s Lacrosse. Jon now works for ESPN as a member of their Digital Media team, and as an announcer for ESPN3’s coverage of College Basketball.

 

James Thurlow, a College of Charleston graduate, grew up in the suburbs of New York City as a diehard Knicks, Mets and Jets fan. (Tough, huh?) His fandom led him to pursue a multitude of sports aspirations, including broadcasting high school football & basketball games, attend Bruce Beck & Ian Eagle’s sports broadcasting camp, and AAU basketball, where he met his best friend, Jon. James attended Bergen Catholic High School and played varsity basketball for one of the best high school basketball programs in New Jersey. After graduating school college with a degree in computer science, James currently is employed as a Systems Engineer at Lazard Asset Management, perfecting their formula and stats analysis for 1 on 1.
