Christian Jones Named Second Team All-OAC


AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – Wilmington College men's basketball senior Christian Jones has garnered Second Team All-Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) honors, the conference released on Friday.

An Honorable Mention All-OAC honoree last season, Jones finished fourth in the OAC in scoring at 19.2 points per game. He also grabbed 2.8 rebounds per contest and finished second on the squad in assists per game at 2.7.

Jones scored in double figures in all but two games this season including crossing the 25-point plateau on four occasions. His career high in scoring came in a 35-point performance in John Carroll University on Feb. 3.

One of the most prolific free throw shooters in program history, Jones carried an 85.0 free throw percentage throughout his career and all turned in four of the 10 best free throw shooting seasons. Jones leaves Wilmington's men's basketball program as its seventh all-time leading scorer with 1,379 career points.

"CJ [Christian Jones] had a phenomenal senior season," Head Men's Basketball Coach K.C. Hunt said. "He was a dynamic scorer and a tremendous leader all year long. This is a much deserved honor."

Wilmington finished its 2017-18 season with an 11-14 overall record and a 7-11 mark in OAC competition.
