Larry Vaught speaks to UK commit Kyle Wiltjer about Terrence Jones
Jones continues frosh legacy
Last week the 6-8 Jones averaged 23.0 points, 11.3 rebounds and 3.3 blocks in games against Oklahoma, No. 13 Washington and UConn at the EA?Sports Maui Invitational. Jones was the lone Kentucky player named to the all-tournament team after he scored in double-digits in all three games in Hawaii. The Kentucky forward posted double-doubles in two of the three games, including his second 20-10 game of the season.
The 29 points Jones scored against Oklahoma tied for second most points in a game by a Wildcat freshman in school history. When Terrence grabbed 17 rebounds against Washington he tied for sixth most rebounds by a freshman in school history.
For Jones it was his second award of the season. He has picked up where last year's fantastic group of frosh left off. Last season UK won the award 11 times, led by John Wall's five, DeMarcus Cousins' four and Eric Bledsoe won it twice.
Jones also earned national honors as he was named the Hoop Report's National Freshman of the Week. It was the second time this season he's received that honor.
Not bad for a kid who was not listed among the top 25 freshmen in the nation by one unnamed national pundit.
