Player of the Week

Terrence JonesTerrence JonesTerrence Jones, Kentucky

A sweltering hot gym, earthquake and recruiting "controversy" stood in his path, but Jones never broke stride. His limitless potential was on display from the opening tip of the Maui Invitational, as he splashed on the scene filling up the stat sheets and earning All-Tournament team honors. Jones averaged 23 points, 11 rebounds and 3 blocks over the three games, leading his team to a runner-up finish. He shot 54% from the floor (22/41), and got to the free throw stripe 32 times connecting on 21 (66%, up from 33% in the opening two games). His perimeter stroke was in full flight in the championship against Connecticut, hitting all 4 three-point attempts and 8/9 free throws, albeit in a losing effort. He played under control for the most part, committing only four turnovers in the tournament. If he can consistently produce this level of performance during his freshman campaign- look out basketball world. Finesse on the perimeter and aggressiveness on the interior, he can do it all.
