SHIPPENSBURG- Shippensburg Freshman guard Ariel Jones was named the PSAC East Women’s Basketball Freshman of the Week.
Jones has been named Freshman of The Week seven out of the ten weeks of the basketball season so far. She was given the honor after averaging over 26 points last week, including a career high 36 points against Mercyhurst.
Despite all of the hype, Jones remains humble and credits her teammates for her success.
“They help me out a lot,” Jones said of her teammates. “They’re always there for me when I need them, they hype me up when I’m having a bad game, they tell me that it’s not all about how I’m doing it’s about how well the team is doing.”
Jones and the rest of the women’s basketball team will take the floor this Saturday at Lock Haven.
