It is the first OVC Player of the Week award of the season for the Cougars and the third time this season Jones has been tapped as the Freshman of the Week.
Jones averaged a double-double for the week with 16.5 points and 11.0 rebounds per game against UT Martin and Southeast Missouri. She also led the Cougars for the week in assists (7), steals (5), and blocked shots (3).
The Cowden, Ill., native recorded a career-high 14 rebounds against Southeast Missouri to go along with her game-high 21 points. She scored 12 points in SIUE's upset win this past Saturday against UT Martin.
Jones joined Murray State's Taylor Mills with honors. Mills was named the OVC Newcomer of the Week.
The Cougars, 7-18 overall and 3-9 in the OVC, continue play Saturday with a 5:15 p.m. contest at Austin Peay.
