One day after being named an AP All-American, Razorback Basketball Star, Mason Jones announced he will share his decision to come back to school or pursue his NBA dreams.
The Hogs’ combo guard, point forward or whatever you’d like to call him put on a show for Razorback fans in 2019-2020. Buzzer beaters, game winners and leading his team to memorable wins have helped him climb into the discussion to be drafted this off-season should the NBA chooses to continue with their draft.
How did Jones get to this position? Hard work and dedication to the game he loves. Here are some of his accomplishments from this past season:
AP Co-SEC Player of the Year
First team All-SEC by media and coaches
Four-time SEC Player of the Week
Led the SEC in scoring (22.0), 8th in the NCAA
Conference Games Scoring Leader– 23.6 ppg (Arkansas Season Record)
Mine 30-point games
Two 40-point games
Led NCAA in FT Made (233) and FT Attempts (282)
The eight player in Razorback history to score 1,000 points in two seasons.
Should Jones be drafted this year, it will be the first time Arkansas will have players drafted in back to back seasons since Sonny Weems (2008) and Patrick Beverley (2009).
