Terence Jones Named GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week

CORPUS CHRISTI – Texas A&M - Corpus Christi men's basketball player Terence Jones has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Jones earned the award following his double-figure scoring efforts last week.

Jones had an explosive week on the offensive end, notching a career-high 33 points against Texas State and scoring 20 of the Islanders 49 points against Stephen F. Austin. The junior shot 9-of-18 in each game and had a 13.of-16 overall performance from the free-throw line. His 33 points were the most by an Islander since Kevin Palmer scored 35 against UT Arlington in the 2008 Southland Conference Tournament.

Jones and the men's basketball team will next embark on a three-game, six-day road trip, beginning with a Wednesday, Feb. 1, game at Nicholls State.
