Tennessee junior point guard Jordan Bone is having a heck of a season.

The 6-foot-3 Nashville native is averaging 13.6 points and 6.6 assists per game on the year. He’s been extremely dynamic while leading the No. 1 Vols to a 20-1 overall record and an 8-0 conference record.

And on Monday, he was recognized for his phenomenal effort when he was named the SEC Men’s Basketball Co-Player of the Week. In a road win over South Carolina and a victory over Texas A&M in College Station this week, Bone averaged 18.5 points, 9 assists, and 5 rebounds per contest.

Before the 2018-19 season began, Bone was named to the Bob Cousy Award watch list. The honor is given to the best point guard in America each season and through 21 games, Bone is making a strong case to be the player that walks away from this year with that illustroius moniker.
