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.

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.
