OGDEN, Utah – After leading Weber State to two straight wins, Dillon Jones was named the Big Sky player of the week.

Dillon Jones averaged 17.5 points, 14.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 2.0 steals per game on 52% from the field in the two wins over Portland State and Sacramento State.

Jones leads Weber State in scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals. He is fourth in the conference in assists, 3.9, and ranks third in steals, 1.6.

Dillon Jones Gets Player Of The Week

This is Jones’ third time receiving Big Sky player of the week honors.

So far this season, Jones has 11 double-doubles, fifth most in the nation. He has scored in double figures 15 times, including 13 of the last 14. He also has had 10 or more rebounds in six of the last seven.

Late in the game against Sacramento State, the score was tied at 58. Jones got past the defense and made what was the eventual game-winner.

Impressively, Weber State held the Hornet’s leading scorer, Zach Chappell, to 2/17 from the field in the matchup.

After winning this game, the Wildcat’s claimed an even record, 10-10, for the first time since the beginning of the season.

The game against Portland State didn’t require the same heroics from Jones, the final score was 84-68. Jones was a large part of the win regardless. He posted 17 points, 14 rebounds, 8 assists (career-high), and 3 steals.

The Wildcat’s next game is on Thursday against the Idaho Vandals.
