Senior guard Morgan Jones has been selected as a Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Honorable Mention All-American. It is her second consecutive season of earning the honor.

 A native of Jonesboro, Ga., she is the just the seventh Seminole to earn All-America honors in multiple seasons. She joins Kiah Gillespie (2019 and 2020), Shakayla Thomas (2016-18), Leticia Romero (2015-17), Adut Bulgak (2015 and 2016), Natasha Howard (2011 and 2014) and Sue Galkantas (1981 and 1982).

Jones’ selection marks the ninth consecutive season a Seminole has been named an All-American. From 2014 to 2022, at least one Florida State student-athlete has been recognized nationally.

The two-time All-American averaged 13.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and shot 46 percent (154-of-335) from the floor last season. She also made 106 free throws in 2021-22, tied for the 20th-most in a single season at FSU and the most since Nicki Ekhomu made 127 in the 2018-19 season.

Jones is one of 42 student-athletes who made the honorable mention All-America Team. She also is one of 10 ACC players to make either the 10-member All-America Team or the 42-member honorable mention list.

Jones is also one of 21 All-Americans in Florida State women’s basketball’s history. Overall, FSU boasts 39 All-America honors carried out by those 21 players.
