D’Mauria Jones Does It All! Outstanding Tournament

Posted: September 18, 2017 in AVC Men's Basketball

JL0_7232I must admit I did not see all of the 50 teams in the three days I ground through 10 hours of basketball daily from morning to night but without a doubt I must say that AVC’s D’Mauria Jones, 6’4″, 215 Guard/Wing was one of the top three players I saw in the tournament.

Dee nearly played every minute of every game due to injuries of three AVC starters who were unable to play in the last two games.  Scoring in double figures every game, including an unbelievable run of  12 points in the last 90 seconds of a heart breaking  loss to El Camino.  Dominating the boards and the defensive end was impressive but to me the thing that impress me the most was his leadership on the floor.  His patience with the freshmen who often were playing many minutes beyond what was expected of them and he showed excellent control both in wins and losses.  Outstanding job Dee.

The line is just getting longer and longer for D-1 universities who want his services next year.

A message to D’Mauria, “Continue to put in the same effort you have shown last year into your academics this year as well.”  “Blow the universities coaches away with your grades.
