Collin Jones possesses that rare combination of size, strength and shooting skills. He is, quite simply, one of the best players in the MAC Commonwealth Conference.
His presence also helps make Lebanon Valley College the best men’s basketball team in the MAC Commonwealth Conference.
This week, Jones, a sophomore out of Central Mountain, guided the Flying Dutchmen to a 1-1 record, and the MAC Commonwealth Conference regular-season crown.
On Friday at home, Jones went for 21 points and 11 rebounds in Lebanon Valley’s 78-69 setback at the hands of Stevenson. In 38 minutes of action, Jones shot seven-for-14 from the floor and also came up with three steals.
A night earlier at Stevenson, Jones contributed ten points to LVC’s 94-88 road triumph. In that outing, Jones also pulled down eight caroms.
For the season, Jones leads Lebanon Valley in scoring, at a 20.2 points per game clip, and in rebounding and three-pointers made. From the floor, Jones’ shooting percentage is just a tick under 53 percent.
