Josh Jones is hanging up his high tops for good. The senior guard on the Creighton men¹s basketball team has announced that his basketball career is over, the result of an atrial flutter discovered after the Omaha native fainted prior to warm-ups at Nebraska on Dec. 6th.
Jones underwent nine hours of testing on Dec. 18th, but in the end, the risk of continuing to play basketball was too much.
Jones was Creighton¹s top guard off the bench each of the past two years, averaging 7.0 points per game. He played in 108 games, including 14 starts, with the Bluejays, collecting 538 points, 151 rebounds, 131 assists and 67 steals.
Jones will remain part of the program and sit on the bench the rest of this season before graduating in May.
