Summit League recognizes Johnathon Jones' championship efforts

Oakland University men's senior point guard Johnathon Jones was rewarded for his efforts in the past few games, where he took the team on his back in the closing stages and led the Golden Grizzlies to their first Summit League regular-season title in 10 years. Jones, the Summit preseason player of the year, earned his first player of the week honor this season, which he shares with Indiana-Purdue Indianapolis' Robert Glenn.
Jones began the week with a season-high 25 points versus South Dakota State, dishing out six assists and converted on a career-high 5-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc. The 5-foot-11 guard posted his third straight 20-point game with 24 against North Dakota State, tallying seven assists, to lead the Golden Grizzlies to their second outright regular-season championship.
For the week, Jones averaged 24.5 points, 6.5 assists and 2.0 steals per game. He also posted 13 assists to just two turnovers and has started in 130 consecutive games for the Grizzlies, a school record.
Glenn averaged 28.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.5 steals in 29 minutes per game during the week. Glenn and the Jaguars are the only Summit team to beat Oakland and are in position to be the No. 2 seed in the upcoming Summit League Tournament. The Grizzlies have wrapped up the No. 1 seed for the tournament, which runs March 6-10 in Sioux Falls, S.D.
