UCSB Women’s Basketball Adds Transfer from LIU Brooklyn

Paris Jones, a 5-foot-5 guard from Long Island University-Brooklyn, will be the latest transfer to join UC Santa Barbara's roster this summer, head coach Bonnie Henrickson announced on Thursday.

Originally from Riverside, Calif., Jones spent the last four years in a Blackbirds uniform, appearing in 62 games with 14 starts. She will enter the fall as a redshirt senior, having missed the 2016-17 season due to injury. 

Prior to the injury, Jones was playing the best basketball of her collegiate career. As a sophomore, she started in 13 of her 17 appearances and posted career highs across the board, averaging 9.4 points, 1.5 assists, 1.2 steals and just over two three-pointers per game on an efficient 34 percent clip from range.

For her career, the Santiago High School graduate has averaged 4.4 points and 1.1 assists in 18.6 minutes per contest. During her time at Santiago High, Jones was a four-time all-league honoree and led her team to three league titles and a CIF-Southern Section I-AA championship. 

Jones is the third student-athlete to be added to the roster this offseason, joining guard Ijeoma Briana Anugwom and guard/forward Kayla Washington.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
