Tennessee’s Jordan Bone earned SEC co-Player of the Week honors for his performances against South Carolina and Texas A&M, as announced by the league office Monday.

Bone continued showing why he’s considered one of the best point guards in the country last week, averaging 18.5 points, 9.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting 70 percent from the floor and 78 percent from beyond the arc in UT’s two road wins.

With 18 points and 10 assists at Texas A&M, the Nashville, Tenn., native became the third Vol ever to have three points/assists double-doubles in a season, joining Tyrone Beaman (1982-83) and Rodney Woods (1974-75). Bone was a perfect 7-of-7 from the floor and knocked down a career-high-tying four 3-pointers to help Tennessee win its program-record 16th straight game, surpassing a mark that had stood for more than a century (1915-1917).

The junior guard had 19 points and nine assists in Tennessee’s win at South Carolina, who was previously undefeated at home during league play. He has nearly doubled his scoring this year at 13.6 ppg.

For the season, Bone leads the SEC in assists (6.6 apg) and assist/turnover ratio (3.6). In SEC play, those numbers are even more impressive at 7.0 apg and an incredible 5.1 assist/turnover ratio. This year, he is responsible for 33 percent (608 of 1820) of UT’s offensive production through his scoring (285) and points off assists (323).

Tennessee (20-1, 8-0 SEC) is back in action Tuesday night, hosting Missouri for a 9 p.m. tip at Thompson-Boling Arena. There are still tickets remaining for the game, which can be purchased at AllVols.com.
