OGDEN, Utah – Weber State Wildcats forward Dillon Jones was named the Big Sky Player of the Week for the sixth time this season and the 14th of his career.

In an undefeated week, Jones averaged 21 points, 8.5 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 steals a game.

In a narrow two-point win over the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks, Jones posted 26 points and 8 rebounds on 62% shooting.

He took five trips to the free-throw line as well and buried all ten attempts.

The Wildcats found themselves down by four with two minutes left. Jones scored seven of Weber State’s last eight points to secure the two-point win.

Two days later, Jones and the Wildcats traveled to Greeley, Colorado to take on the Northern Colorado Bears.

Weber State blew out NCU behind a 21-point performance from Jones. He added nine rebounds, five assists, and three steals.
