WHAT THEY’RE SAYING…

“To me, no matter who we play against, we're not going to face somebody better than he is, especially on offense. He has such a unique way of playing. He scores inside the three-point line, and for a perimeter player, that's different these days. "Cameron Jones doesn't get the credit he deserves. I would put him against any of the great guards who are playing college basketball right now."

-- Arizona Head Coach Sean Miller
