M. Basketball – Jones named NJCAA All-American

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Johnson County Community College sophomore guard Pat Jones has been selected to the 2014 NJCAA Division II Men’s Basketball All-American team, earning second-team honors. He is the 15th player in team history to earn All-America honors in men’s basketball, and the 12 under guidance of head coach Mike Jeffers.

Jones, who will attend Lyn University in Boca Raton, Fla., averaged an impressive 20.6 points per game, making him just the sixth player in the 45-year history of the program to finish a season with an average over 20 per game. He reached double figures 24 times on the season. He had 17 games in the 20s, six in the 30s and he poured in a career high 41 in a win at Hesston in late January. That effort tied the sixth-best game by a Cavalier, and he drained eight 3-point baskets, one shy of the single game record.

Jones also hit 86 3-point baskets on the season, and 193 free throws. Both totals rank second on JCCC’s season charts.

For his career, Jones scored 843 points, hit 114 3-point baskets and 255 free throws, which rank 25th, 10th and sixth respectively at JCCC.
