Kevin Jones: By the Numbers

Posted:
MORGANTOWN -

Senior Forward Kevin Jones rewrote the WVU record books earlier this week. Jones now holds the school record for offensive rebounds in a career with 313.

Jones set the record early in the first half against Alcorn State. Following the game, Head Coach Bob Huggins praised his star player.

"He is right now the all-time leading offensive rebounder," Huggins said. "Second leading scorer, second leading rebounder I think on the Final Four team. He has had a Hall of Fame career."

With a potential Hall of Famer taking the floor this season, we thought it would be fun to check out where Kevin Jones ranks on the all-time WVU charts.

Jones owns the offensive rebounding record. His 727 rebounds are good enough for 17th in school history. Jones is 138 rebounds behind Darryl Pure for 10th all-time.

Jones is 25th on the career scoring chart at WVU with 1,229 points. That puts him 432 points behind Chris Brooks for 10th all-time.

KJ has recorded 14 double-doubles. That is good enough for 28th on the all-time list. 11 more double-doubles will vault Jones into ninth, which is the spot currently owned by both Mack Isner and Damian Owens.

Jones has scored ten points or more in 65 games throughout his career. That is 22nd in school history. He is 15 games out of eighth in that category. Ron "Fritz Williams, Hot Rod Hundley and Dale Blaney hold that spot on the chart.

KJ is also appearing on the blocked shots list. His 78 blocks are 15th in school history. Jones is 15 blocks behind Joe Alexander for tenth.

It is also important to point out that Jones not only owns the career record in offensive rebounds, but he also owns the season record. His 135 offensive rebounds in 2010 are at the top of that list. Jones is also third with 108 offensive boards last season.

Jones has the better part of his senior season ahead of him to climb up those lists. It is impressive to see the wide variety of accomplishments he has already achieved. From rebounds to points scored and blocked shots, Jones is clearly a special player.

Perhaps fans should try and grab as many tickets as possible to watch KJ play in Morgantown. It may be a while before WVU has another player achieve the kind of stats Jones will achieve in his career.
