What if I told you that Terrence Jones is averaging more points in the NBA Summer League that he did at Kentucky last season? 

You'd believe it because Jones sacrificed more of his offensive game than any other player during UK's NCAA championship push. He averaged 15.7 as a freshman, 12.3 as a sophomore.

Well, it's only two games, but Jones has scored 16 and 17 points for the Houston Rockets. He's also made 11 of 21 shots, including half of his four three-pointers. He's got 14 rebounds, but only three assists. 

Josh Harrellson, his former and now current teammate, failed to score in about five minutes as the Rockets lost to Washington, 76-70.

Lexington native Shelvin Mack, who played at Butler, scored 11 points for Washington.

Former Doss High star Jeff Brooks scored 6 points with 9 rebounds for the Wizards. Brooks played for Penn State.
