Jones Collects SEC Service Team Honors

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – LSU junior forward Ann Jones secured SEC Community Service Team honors for her leadership and dedication off the court Thursday as announced by the conference office. This marks the 17th season of the SEC Community Service Team for SEC women’s basketball.

Jones has participated in a variety of community service efforts which includes her work with the Big Buddy program where she volunteered at a local school to mentor youth.

Jones played a major role in the team’s participation in Thanksgiving with the Tigers, an event where each LSU athletic team adopts an underprivileged child for the holidays and welcomes the child along with his or her family to campus for a Thanksgiving style meal served by the student-athletes and games, activities, and gift exchanges.

Jones and her teammates also spent time at the Halloween BOOzar which is an event that provides local children with a safe and fun Halloween experience playing games, getting candy and autographs, and interacting with their favorite LSU student-athletes.

Additionally, Jones has volunteered with Alzheimer’s Services Walk/Run to Remember and the Arc of Baton Rouge where she played basketball with special needs children.

LSU wraps up its regular season road slate at Ole Miss on Thursday evening. Tipoff is slated for 6 p.m. CT from Tad Smith Coliseum. The game will be carried online only by SEC Network Plus courtesy of www.WatchESPN.com and the Watch ESPN app.

The LSU Sports Radio Network will broadcast the game on its flagship station Talk 107.3 FM in Baton Rouge. Patrick Wright, the voice of the Lady Tigers, will call the action. The broadcast also will be available for Geaux Zone subscribers at www.LSUsports.net/live.
