Simpson University Sports News


REDDING, Calif. - Nichole Jones has been a part of the women’ basketball program for four years and looks to accomplish big things during the 2013-2014 season.

As a Simpson athlete, Jones has earned the women’s basketball team’s defensive award and Second Team NCCAA West Region and First Team Cal-Pac honors. She was also ranked nationally in steals.

Jones helped lead her team to two road victories on November 9-10 against Warner Pacific University (71-65) and Concordia University (81-75) with 18 points and 21 points respectively.

“This weekend showed what our team can do when we truly play for each other and more importantly, Christ,” said Jones. “Knowing that He gives us our talents and we’re able to bless him through it give us that much confidence and allows us to finish games strong.”
