A former three-star recruit from the St. Louis area, Jones has been Butler’s leader on offense this year to the tune of 14.3 points per game (second on the team) and shooting 50 percent from the field. His loss would be a big one since Butler is 1-2 in Big East play and will need all the offense it can muster against a Villanova squad that is 3-0 in Big East competition and knows how to score and is also 10th in points allowed per game.
And it just so happens that Jones is also a fine on-ball defender, so slowing down the Wildcats could prove impossible for Butler if he is unable to go.
Be sure to stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on Jones’ status for tomorrow!
