(Gr., G – Little Rock, Ark.)

Warhawks graduate student guard Andre Jones averaged 25.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists—leading ULM to its first conference road weekend sweep since February 2018. The Little Rock, Ark., native helped ULM erase a 14-point second-half deficit with a 21-point performance in a 60-59 win at Arkansas State on Thursday. Jones then netted a career-high 30 points in a 75-72 overtime victory at Little Rock on Saturday, becoming the first Warhawk to score at least 30 points in a game since Michael Ertel netted 30 against Georgia Southern on Feb. 6, 2020. Jones’ two free throws with 7.9 seconds remaining in regulation sent the game to overtime.
