Moberly Area Community College freshmen Autumn Jones and Romekia Wallace were recently recognized for their performance on the basketball court as they were selected to the NJCAA All-Region 16 First Team. Jones, who led the Greyhound Women in several statistical categories, finished second in the Player of the Year balloting and will be nominated for the 2016 NJCAA All-American team as a result.

“Any time we have players receive this kind of recognition it always makes you proud,” said MACC head coach Chad Killinger. “Autumn and Romekia were two of our more consistent players, especially when it came to region games, and both of them had some pretty dominant performances at different points in the season. What is even more impressive is that they both really care about their academics and have done a great job in the classroom as well.”

Jones led the Greyhound Women in scoring, averaging 16.3 points per game, as she currently ranks 25th in the nation with 521 total points. She also led the team in assists with 3.9 per game, three point field goals made with 48, and three point field goal percentage, as she shot 36.4 percent from beyond the arc. Jones made a team high 97 free throws on the season, while tying for the team lead in steals with 1.6 per contest.

In Region 16 games Jones increased her scoring average to 20.7 per game and also averaged 4.7 rebounds and 4.8 assists. She reached double figures in scoring in 26 contests, scoring 20 or more points 12 times, and led MACC in scoring in 17 games, while also leading the Greyhound Women in assists on 21 occasions. She recorded two double-doubles during the season and tied the school record for three point field goals made in a single game when she knocked down eight three’s against Three Rivers in the first round of the NJCAA Region 16 Tournament.

“Autumn is still learning how good she can be,” said Killinger. “She has a tremendous work ethic and a desire to succeed that a lot of people don’t have, but those things have allowed her to develop into more than just the defensive stopper that she was in high school. She still has some areas of her game that she needs to work on, but there is no doubt in my mind that she will continue to improve in all facets of the game.”
