June 29, 2010
LAS VEGAS - Former UNLV men's basketball guard Steve Jones has earned Spring 2010 Academic All-Mountain West Conference honors, the league announced Tuesday.
Jones, who graduated in May and exhausted his eligibility as a senior during the 2009-10 season, had a 3.05 cumulative grade point average with a major of communication studies.
To be eligible for selection to the Academic All-MWC team, student-athletes must have completed at least one academic term at the school while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better, and be a starter or significant contributor on their team.
During the 2009-10 season, Jones played in all 34 of UNLV's games and averaged just over 10 minutes played per contest. The Runnin' Rebels recorded an overall mark of 25-9 on the season and made their third NCAA Tournament appearance in the last four years.
