2007-08: Brad Jones may be the most versatile player in the Mountain West Conference. Whether it be scoring, rebounding, handing out assists or playing defense, it would be hard to find a player in the MWC better than Jones. He also was the true "Iron Man" of the league a year ago, leading the conference in minutes played. He played an average of 37.10 minutes per game out of every 40-minute game. He returns as the second leading scorer in the MWC this season -- second only to his backcourt mate Brandon Ewing. A fierce competitor, Jones plays every minute of every game at full speed, and few if any can match his quickness and desire.

2006-07: Jones was the only player in the Mountain West Conference to rank in the Top Five individuals in both scoring and assists for the 2006-07 season. He averaged 18.1 points per game, and handed out 4.50 assists per game to rank No. 3 in the MWC in both categories. Jones ranked in the Top 15 in the MWC in seven different statistical categories. He was one of only six players named to the MWC All-Tournament team at the conclusion of his junior season. Jones also earned Third Team All-Mountain West Conference honors from MWC coaches and media.

2005-06: Jones played some of his best basketball of the season in the Mountain West Conference Tournament. He averaged 13.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game on way to leading Wyoming to the tournament championship game. Jones recorded his first career double-figure rebounding game vs. Air Force with 11 rebounds in an MWC quarterfinal victory. He tied a career high with 20 points in a semifinal win over Utah, and added 15 points in the championship game against San Diego State. Jones led Wyoming in assists and ranked No. 5 in the MWC, averaging 3.47 assists per game. Jones averaged 10.0 points per game to rank fourth on the Wyoming squad, and averaged 4.5 rebounds per game -- third best for the Cowboys. Including assists, he ranked among league leaders in six statistical categories: No. 7 in assist-to-turnover ratio (0.90 to 1.00), No. 13 in FT% (.710), No. 14 in defensive rebounding (3.38 pg), No. 16 in steals (1.16 spg) and No. 19 in total rebounds (4.5 rpg). Jones led Wyoming to a road win over TCU on Jan. 7, 2006, when he brought the Cowboys back from a nine-point deficit, with only 6:10 remaining in the game, to a four-point victory. Jones scored seven points and handed out three assists in the final six minutes vs. TCU on way to 18 total points as UW outscored TCU 18-5 in the final 6:10. He scored a season high 20 points on Feb. 25, 2006, in a 78-80 home loss to Colorado State. Jones shot 50.0 percent (8 of 16) from the field and 66.7% (4 of 6) from the free-throw line against the Rams. Against San Diego State on Jan. 28, Jones scored 13 points, grabbed nine rebounds, handed out five assists, blocked two shots and made three steals in 40 minutes of play. Versus Utah on Feb. 1, 2006, Jones scored 15 points and grabbed six rebounds, while shooting 55.6 percent from the field and a perfect 4 of 4 from the free-throw line. Jones started 26 of Wyoming's 32 games during the 2005-06 season, including 20 of the last 21 games.

Jones came to Wyoming after an outstanding season at Fort Smith Community College in Fort Smith, Ark. Jones' excellent quickness and style of play fit well into Wyoming's up-tempo game. Jones played both point guard and shooting guard along with his running mate Brandon Ewing.

Junior College: Jones averaged 10.7 points and 6.5 assists per game his freshman season of 2004-05 at Fort Smith Community College. Jones helped lead Fort Smith to a 29-4 record for the '04-'05 season. Fort Smith achieved a final regular-season ranking of No. 4 in the nation among National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) teams. They also captured the Bi-State Conference East Division Championship, and advanced all the way to the NJCAA Region II Championship game before losing by four points, 74-78, to Seminole State College of Seminole, Okla.
