BOSTON, Mass. – Senior Cameron Jones was named to the 2011 Lou Henson All-America team, becoming the first player in school history to be named to the exclusive 25-player squad. Jones joined Northern Colorado’s Devon Beitzel on the squad.
Jones averaged 20.0 points per game as a senior, breaking the school's single-season and career scoring marks during the season. He was a unanimous selection to the All-Big Sky first-team and is a finalist for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award. He was also a NABC All-District 6 second team selection.
The 2011 Lou Henson Player of the Year will be announced at the CollegeInsider.com awards banquet on April 1 in Houston, site of the men's basketball championship.
The Lou Henson Award is presented annually to the top Mid-Major player in Division I college basketball. The award is named in honor of Lou Henson who retired after a spectacular coaching career that lasted 41 years. When he left the game in 2005 he was sixth all-time in career Division I wins with 779. He is the winningest coach at both Illinois and New Mexico State. He is one of only 12 coaches in the history of the game to take two schools to the Final Four.
