Jones initiates the Ravens’ offense and brings a gritty, tough element that becomes infectious as the game progresses. Jones averages 16.5 points, 6.5 assists and 3.4 steals per game and serves as the team’s vocal leader on the floor. “He’s a true point guard and he just controls our team in all areas,” Billerman said. “He’s a great leader.”
Ravenscroft knocked off North Carolina-powerhouse Christ School (NC) twice in convincing fashion and also won the High School OT Holiday Invitational in December. In that tournament the Ravens knocked off Wesleyan Christian (NC) and United Faith (NC). Ravenscroft also knocked off Greensboro Day (NC) to claim the state title.
“We beat all of the top private school teams in our state,” Billerman said. “The guys really stepped up and met every challenge.”
