Decorey Jones, a senior forward on the 2011-2012 Faulkner basketball team, was drafted in the first round of the World Basketball Association's college player draft recently by the Conyers Court Kings (Ga.).
The WBA is a developmental league with a mission to teach, develop, and expose players to NBA, NBDL, CBA, and international scouts while providing each community an exciting brand of basketball and entertainment.
"I am very excited about the opportunity to continue my basketball career at the professional level," said Jones, who averaged seven points and four rebounds a game for head coach Jim Sanderson and the Eagles. "My time spent with coach Sanderson and the Faulkner basketball program has prepared me well and I look forward to getting started with the WBA and see where it may take me."
Jones, who graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration, will report for training camp in late May.
