What does this experience mean to you?
Jones: It means everything. It has put me through so much and has shaped the person I am today. It's not always going to be easy and it'll be tough at some times as well, but it puts you through trials and tribulations that can shape who you are.
How have you changed as a player during your time at Pitt?
Jones: I think I have a lot more knowledge of the game now. Just knowing where to be on the court offensively and defensively. My body has definitely changed a lot in terms of strength.
How have you managed to be a successful student and DI athlete?
Jones: I have been able to perform pretty well on the court and luckily I have already gotten my degree, so I have definitely had success in both.
One of the largest things I took from the Life Skills program is how to manage my money. I feel like that has helped me a lot with saving my money once I'm done here.
Best advice you were given or any advice you have to give to future student-athletes?
Jones: The best advice I've been given is whatever you're going to do in life, don't do it because others are doing it but do it because you want to. Advice that I have for future student-athletes would just be to buy in to what your coaches are saying. They may be tough on you but they really do want to help you.
Do you have a favorite moment?
Jones: I don't have one single moment, but just coming in here and getting to play in front of the Oakland Zoo is definitely my favorite. They are an amazing crowd and give us so much energy, especially during the ACC games. It's been fun.
