Two Golden Eagles named All-Americans
The College of Southern Idaho men’s basketball team received two NJCAA Division I All-America selections.
CSI sophomore guard Charles Jones Jr. earned a spot on the All-America first team, and freshman forward Khalid Thomas was an honorable mention. Last month, they led the Golden Eagles to the NJCAA Division I title game, where they lost to South Plains College.
This is Jones Jr.’s second All-American selection in as many seasons. Last year, he received a third-team selection, the only one given to a CSI player on the 2016-17 roster.
Jones Jr. and Thomas were No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in points per game for CSI this past season: 19.7 for Jones Jr., 14.7 for Thomas. Jones Jr. shot 48.6 percent from the field and a team-leading 45.5 percent from 3-point range, while Thomas shot 54.8 percent on field goals and 41.4 percent on 3s.
Jones Jr., a University of Utah signee, finished his CSI career with 1,194 total points, one behind the school record set by Frederick Edmond in 2015.
Hendricks commits to Mountain West program
CSI sophomore guard Jake Hendricks announced his commitment to University of Wyoming on Tuesday.
Hendricks is one of three CSI players in the last two seasons to commit to a Mountain West school. Roche Grootfaam signed with Utah State in November, and Twin Falls High School graduate Casdon Jardine played for Boise State this past season. Last week, Jardine announced that he received his release from the Broncos.
Hendricks set the CSI record for career 3-pointers made in February, and he sunk 203 total 3s in his two seasons with the Golden Eagles.
