Maryland success is hit or miss for Jones

Whether a hero or a goat, shooter always stands out

March 08, 2006|By HEATHER A. DINICH | HEATHER A. DINICH,SUN REPORTER

College Park -- Mike Jones was only a freshman, a newcomer to the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in Greensboro, N.C., when he hit a crucial three-pointer against Duke with 33 seconds remaining to cut the Terps' deficit to 75-74.

Two seasons ago, that shot propelled the Terps to their first tournament championship in 20 years. It was recalled easily yesterday by teammates as one of the most notable in Jones' career - right alongside the untimely missed reverse dunk he attempted a month ago against Virginia.
