Lazeric Jones Named UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week

Dec. 27, 2011

Senior guard Lazeric Jones (Chicago, IL/John A. Logan College) of the UCLA men's basketball team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Dec. 19-25.

Jones led the Bruins to a pair of victories during the week, extending the Bruins' win streak to five games with an 89-60 win over UC Irvine on Dec. 20 and a 71-63 win over 2011 Sweet Sixteen participant Richmond on Dec. 23. Jones, averaging a team-high 13.5 points per game, led an incredibly balanced scoring attack for UCLA on the week as seven different Bruins averaged double figures. He had 11 points and six assists in the blowout win over the Anteaters and followed that with a team-high 16 points and six rebounds against Richmond. He shot 56.3 percent from the floor (9-for-16) from the field and 50.0 percent from three point range (2-for-4) while sinking 77.8 percent (7-for-9) of his free throws on the week. He averaged 13.5 points, 4.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 0.5 steals per game. He has scored in double figures in seven straight games, a personal-best, while leading UCLA to a 6-1 record during that stretch after the Bruins started the season at 1-4. In the last seven games, Jones has averaged 16.1 points, 4.0 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 2.1 steals while shooting 60.9 percent (39-for-64) from the field and 56.5 percent (13-for-23) from three-point range.

This is Jones' first UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and second of his career.

Also nominated: Thea Lemberger, W. Basketball.
