The Columbia, South Carolina native led the Big Sky in points, rebounds, and assists, becoming the only player in the country to lead their conference in all three categories. Jones averaged a double-double with 20.8 points and 10.1 rebounds while adding 5.2 assists and two steals per game. His 18 double-doubles are the seventh most in the country.

Per Sports Reference, since the 1992-93 season, Jones is one of two players in the country to post at least 600 points, 300 rebounds, 150 assists, and 50 steals in a season. Ben Simmons at LSU in 2015-16 is the only player to post those numbers since at least the 1992-93 season.

Jones was named Big Sky Player of the Week eight times this season. He became the 10th player in program history to be named Big Sky MVP and was the first since former Utah Jazz forward Joel Bolomboy in 2016.
