Five Greatest Games: Jerry Jones

The final holdover from the Ron Everhart era, Jerry Jones grew from a catch and shot wing into a play maker who could beat you at times with his jumper, on the bounce and with a sharp pass. Jones struggled with consistency and despite showing flashes of skill, he never rarely strung his best efforts together over multiple games. As a result, he remained a spark off the bench rather than developing into a key player. In the end, he still had a strong Five Greatest Games list.

5. New Year’s Eve 2011 vs Houston Baptist

A outstanding example of a Jerry Jones efficiency explosion. He hit eight of nine from the floor for nineteen points in twenty – one minutes.

4. January 23, 2013 vs  St Louis

Jerry got his only career double – double on eighteen points and eleven boards as the Dukes had the chance to upset St Louis for their first conference win.

3. November 28, 2012 @ Appalachian St

The trip to Boone yielded a one point team victory and Jerry’s career high twenty – two points. Not only did he put up big numbers, Jerry made two free throws late to seal it.

2. December 10, 2011 vs Penn St

I couldn’t put Penn St number one overall, but this is always the game I think about when I think about Jerry. He came through key times and I recall him buzzing at both ends. He only scored fourteen points but it was a coming out party for him.

1. February 27, 2014 @ St Louis

There is something about St Louis and Jerry Jones. The guy just brings it against them and he helped the Dukes to their biggest road win in a couple of generations by defining offensive efficiency and making important baskets.
