CLEVELAND, Ohio – For the second time in his career, junior Kelvin Jones earned all-conference honors, announced the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) office on Wednesday morning.
Jones, a second-team selection, was named Honorable Mention All-NCAC last season as a sophomore.
Jones not only led the Terrier offense, but he also topped the chart for best field goal percentage in the country (.691). His percentage also broke the single-season program record, which was previously held by John Lampe (.621) during the 1991-92 season.
In addition to making his presence known at the national level, Jones continued to be a standout at the conference level. Jones was the lone person in the NCAC to average a double-double, ranking fifth in points (17) and first in rebounds (11). He also ranked first in the conference in total rebounds with 285.
On the defensive end, Jones ranked fifth in the conference in total blocks (25).
Starting all 26 games for the Terriers, Jones tallied 14 double-double performances over the course of the season. The forward's top performance came against La Roche (Pa.) back in November, where he totaled a season-high 31 points in addition to 15 rebounds.
Jones was recognized twice during the season for his impressive performances. Most recently, the forward was named the NCAC Player of the Week for his work against Denison and Kenyon during the last week of the regular season. He finished with double-doubles in both games, totaling 32 points and 29 rebounds between the two contests.
Jones was also tabbed to the D3hoops.com Team of the Week last November. That week, he shot .807 from the field while posting 59 points and 26 rebounds when the Terriers faced Geneva and La Roche.
