MacArthur's Jones shines at Nike tournament
Irving MacArthur girls basketball star Alexis Jones is one of the most entertaining players in this year's Nike Tournament of Champions field in Chandler, Ariz.
The 5-9 Jones put up 32 points in MacArthur's 72-62 win over No. 5 St. John's College (Washington, D.C.). She scored MacArthur's first eight points with two straight 3-pointers and then an easy layup, which was a result of a steal. She paced her team throughout much of the game and then scored her team's last five points, going 5-of-6 from the free-throw line.
