Awarded sixth-man honors Jones was named the 2020-21 Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year on Monday.
Impact With a deep frontcourt featuring plenty of NBA talent, Jones only made two starts in 23 appearances this season, serving as the primary backup at both frontcourt positions. The sophomore took averages of 3.6 points and 3.3 rebounds in 2019-20 and brought them up to 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds this season. He has the raw skills and physical build to potentially sneak into the first round of the NBA Draft, provided he doesn't remain with the Longhorns another year. First, however, he'll look to help Texas make a postseason run.
