March 28, 2002
PINEHURST, N.C. - Oregon senior Frederick Jones has been named to Basketball America's All-America Third Team, released Thursday. It is the first All-America honor for Jones, an all-Pac-10 performer and Wooden Award finalist who led the Ducks to the NCAA's Midwest Regional final.
Jones averaged 18.6 points and 5.4 rebounds per game as the Ducks went 26-9 and won their first outright conference title in 63 years. He scored 650 points this season, which ranks second on the UO single-season list. He also broke Terrell Brandon's record for free throws made in a season with 169 and tied Brandon's single-season steals mark with 63.
Jones will compete in this weekend's ESPN Slam Dunk championship, which will air on Saturday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. PST.
Luke Ridnour was named to the Basketball Times' All-West Coast team after averaging 15.5 points and 5.0 assists per game. He hit 93 three-pointers, one shy of Orlando Williams' UO single-season record.
The magazine named Ernie Kent its All-West Coast coach of the year, the third such regional honor for Kent this season.
