Mason Jones is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA), on a two-way contract with the South Bay Lakers of the NBA G League. He played college basketball for the Connors State Cowboys and the Arkansas Razorbacks.
On February 4, Jones led the Razorbacks with 40 points in a game that they lost 79–76 to Auburn. Isaiah Joe, the Razorbacks’ second-leading scorer, was sidelined with knee surgery and did not play in the game.
Jones is the only player in Arkansas history to score at least 30 points in three consecutive games. He joined Shaquille O’Neal and Jodie Meeks as the only other SEC players to have multiple games in which they scored 40 or more points.
Jones had a game-high 38 points in Mississippi State’s narrow 78–77 defeat.
Jones became the fifth-fastest Razorback to reach the milestone and the eighth player in school history to do so in his first two seasons with the team in the 86–69 win over Tennessee on February 26, 2020.
Jones also scored his 1,000th career point during the game, making him the eighth player in school history to do so in his first two seasons with the team.
After the end of the regular season, the Associated Press named Jones to the First Team All-SEC and tied him with Mississippi State’s Reggie Perry for the title of co-Player of the Year in the Southeastern Conference.
