Texas A&M women’s basketball’s N’dea Jones earned her second Southeastern Conference Player of the Week honor this season after leading A&M to its first regular season SEC Championship, the league announced Monday.
The former Brookwood standout averaged 14.0 points and 13.5 rebounds per game this week against Alabama and South Carolina. She recorded two double-doubles, and on Sunday, became the Aggies’ all-time leader in rebounds (1,010).
Jones delivered 12 points and 13 rebounds against the Crimson Tide this past Thursday, setting up a historic matchup at Reed Arena against No. 5 South Carolina. The graduate registered 16 points and 14 rebounds against the Gamecocks, lifting them to their first ever regular season SEC crown.
The win was the first ever top-five matchup in Reed history, and the first victory against an opponent in the Associated Press top five since A&M defeated No. 2 Stanford in the Final Four of the 2011 NCAA Tournament.
