USF guard Dominique Jones came up short in his hopes of leading the Bulls to the NCAA Tournament, but he said he hasn't decided whether he will return for his senior year or enter the NBA draft.
"It's a lot of thinking. I wanted to take this team to the NCAA Tournament," he said after a 69-49 loss to No. 22 Georgetown. "If it doesn't work out that way, I just have to weigh my options."
Jones, a 6-foot-4 guard from Lake Wales, led the Big East with 23.2 points per game in conference play and was named first-team All-Big East. Heat president Pat Riley was among NBA personnel at Wednesday's game, and Jones said playing at the next level has always intrigued him.
"That's your dream when you're a little kid," Jones said. "I'm taking everything day-by-day. The NBA is not going anywhere. I feel like I'll just take my time and make my decision on what I'm going to do, finish the year out here and just weigh my options."
