South Florida Bulls men's basketball guard Dominique Jones leads team in points, rebounds and assists

Rare trifecta

Sophomore guard Dominique Jones enters today's game against Villanova leading the Bulls in points (18.8 per game), rebounds (4.9) and assists (4.1). Only two other players in the six major conferences (ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10, SEC) can boast that trifecta for their teams:

Player, TEAM Pts. Reb. Ast.

Dominique Jones, USF 18.8 4.9 4.1

Kyle Singler, Duke 16.8 8.2 3.0

Greivis Vasquez, Maryland 17.0 6.0 4.8

Jones is one of eight players in the six major conferences averaging at least 15 points, four rebounds and four assists. Speaking of rarities, Jones has scored at least 22 points in each of his past four games. The last USF player to do that: B.B. Waldon scored at least 22 in four straight games during the 1998-99 season.
