Already, Bahamian Kai Jones is working himself into the Texas Longhorns’ rotation, and establishing himself as a source of endearment in the Longhorns’ family, giving his team significant minutes off the bench yesterday, and contributing wholeheartedly to a key early-season win at home for the program. Jones, a freshman, enjoyed double-digit minutes for the second consecutive game, and this time posted a career-high. He scored eight points including a few highlight dunks in a close 73-71 win for the Longhorns (6-1, 4-0 Home) over the McNeese State Cowboys (2-6, 0-6 Away) in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I men’s basketball action on Saturday, at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. Jones’ previous best outing was four points in 17 minutes in a convincing 62-45 win for the Longhorns over the California Golden Bears. All of his points on Saturday came at critical points of the game. In fact, the game was close throughout with neither team leading by double figures.
