The KJCCC has announced that Seward County guard Jeremy Jones is the Verizon Wireless Player of the Week for his performances in a pair of wins for the Saints last week. The sophomore from Chicago, Illinois averaged 23 points and 3 assists per game in a pair of Seward wins over Cloud County and Dodge City. On Monday in a big conference matchup in Concordia against the T-Birds, Jones scored 28 points including 7 three-pointers, just one shy of tying the school record, and also had 4 steals in leading the Saints to an 80-57 blowout win. On Saturday against Dodge City Jones helped the Saints breeze to a 92-65 win with 18 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists to keep Seward on top of the Jayhawk West standings.
Jones has now led the Saints in scoring in four straight and 7 of their last 8 games overall. Jones will look to keep up his streak Wednesday in Garden City when the Saints hit the Perryman Center to take on the Broncbusters at 7:30.
