WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Senior guard Natalie Jones has been named honorable mention All-Pac-10. She is the only Arizona honoree and this is the first time she has received such an honor.

The leading scorer for the Wildcats this season, Jones is one of two Wildcats to start all 28 games. She averages a team-best 15.0 points to go with 5.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.3 steals in 35.1 minutes per game. Jones has reached double-figure scoring in 24 of 28 games and has 20 or more points six times. She has four double-doubles on the year and was named to the all-tournament teams at the Great Alaska Shootout and the Fiesta Bowl Classic

Jones ranks third in the Pac-10 in free throw percentage (.818), fourth in steals (2.3), sixth in minutes per game (35.1), eighth in scoring (15.0) and 10th in three-point field goal average (1.5).

Jones, a four-year starter for the Wildcats, holds the Arizona career for games played (124). She also ranks second in free throw percentage (.773), fourth in personal fouls (314), fifth in three-point field goals attempted (380) and free throws made (306), sixth in three-point field goals made (115), minutes played (3,530) and steals (191), seventh in games started (97) and free throws attempted (396), eighth in rebounds (549) and minutes per game (28.5) and 12th in scoring (1,137).

When she grabbed a board at the 1:41 mark in the first half against USC on Feb. 2, she became just the seventh Wildcat ever to total 1,000 points and 500 rebounds on her career. She notched her 1,000 point on a free throw at the 2:02 mark of the second half at Washington State on Jan. 28.
