Hype Guard going back to Olympics

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Basketball announced its 2021 Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Olympic Qualifying Tournament teams, which includes four men and four women. Former FHSU Men’s Basketball standout and Hudson Valley Hype guard Dominique Jones was one of four players named to the men’s team. A total of 16 men were invited to training camp Feb. 13-14 in Chicago and Jones emerged as one of four players chosen with the task of qualifying the United States for the 2021 Olympic Games. Jones was a member of USA’s 3×3 Team that won the Gold Medal at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru and recently in November of 2019, Jones was named the 2019 FIBA 3×3 World Tour Regular Season MVP. Jones has enjoyed a tremendous professional career on the FIBA 3×3 World Tour. He currently holds the No. 1 national ranking in the FIBA points system for players from the United States on the World Tour, and sits among the top 10 players in the world. Jones has helped his 3×3 team from New York/Harlem to several team titles in FIBA World Tour tournaments over the past few years.
Jones was a two-year standout player at Fort Hays State, helping the Tigers to NCAA Tournament appearances in 2009-10 and 2010-11 as the team’s point guard. He nearly scored 1,000 points in his two years, finishing with 983. He also averaged 5.1 assists per game in his career, fifth-best in program history with a total of 324. With his unique one-handed free-throw shooting style, Jones shot 80 percent at the line in his career at FHSU. He shot 40.2 percent from beyond the 3-point line, draining 132 shots from long range.
Jones was an NABC All-America selection as a senior in 2010-11 with 592 points and 207 assists for the season (17.9 ppg, 6.3 apg). He was a two-time All-MIAA First Team selection and helped guide the Tigers to an MIAA Tournament Championship in 2011. He helped the team to a record of 49-14 over the two years, reaching No. 3 in the NABC national rankings both seasons. He is one of four players to earn All-America honors under current FHSU head coach Mark Johnson. Prior to his time at FHSU, Jones was a two-time all-region performer at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, a member of the NJCAA.
