Jones played his best in the three wins over Park, including Manhattan Cup final in which he recorded 18 points, six rebounds and six assists en route to MVP honors. Battled through severe ankle sprain to be ‘X’ factor in second win over Pioneers.

James Rojas

Jamestown: 6-4 junior forward

PPG: 21.8 Reb: 10.1 Assists: 2.7

The ECIC I co-player of the year, Rojas earned his share of the honor by carrying Jamestown to yet another sectional final during what many expected would be a down season for the Class AA power. He scored more than 30 points four times and was held below 10 just once. He sank game-deciding free throws in Class AA semifinal win over North with 4.8 second left. Shot 54.6 percent from the floor.
