A record-breaking performance and some improbable heroics handed Jones his second Player of the Week award of the 2012-13 season.

The sophomore hit seven 3-pointers and capped off the night with a 75-foot game-winning buzzer-beater, giving the Raiders an 80-78 victory. On the week, Jones logged 34 points, five rebounds and three steals per game.


DIVISION II PLAYER OF THE WEEK  

James Pierce – Phoenix College, Ariz.
Guard – Avondale, Ariz. – Estrella Foothills High School

Pierce played a vital role in both of the Bears’ victories last week. Displaying his versatility in a 73-59 win over New Mexico Military, the sophomore recorded 15 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and four steals. Pierce averaged 10.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists on the week.


DIVISION III PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Tyler Wood – Onondaga Community College, N.Y.
Guard – Amsterdam, N.Y. – Broadalbin-Perth High School

Enjoying one of the best games of his collegiate career, Wood led the Lazers to a 119-85 win over Schenectady County CC (N.Y.) last week.
