- Well-earned, fulfilling run coming to an end for UNLV senior Steve Jones (03-03-10)
- UNLV seniors Santee, Jones cherish last home game (03-06-10)
Greene's Take: 'Chop' Jones redshirted last season after transferring from Arizona State, and it didn't take him long to have an impact on his teammates. The most vocal and outgoing member of the team, he was voted last season as its most inspirational member without ever playing in a game. He'll see some minutes this season as a reserve, but more important than anything, he's the heart and soul of this team. One of two seniors on the roster, his veteran presence will be key.
