Jones didn’t have the flashiest of statistics during her senior year, 11 ppg and just over six rpg. But her selection was based on her all around skills, including her adapting to a new position in handling the point guard spot at times this season.
“Her role changed quite a bit because we were so inexperienced at guard,” Lentz said. “In order to be competitive early, we had to play her at point, which was out of position, to say the least. But it helped her. The ball handling skills that she picked up really helped her as an all around player.”
While Sunday closed out the high school career for Jones, she plans to continue with basketball in college.
“I’m ready for the next level,” Jones said. “I’m proud of the four years that I had here (at Ben Davis).”
Jones listed Danville Area Community, Marian University, Salem International, and Lincoln Trail as schools she is considering.
