Jones rebounds after Kentucky's loss to Indiana

COLIN FLY AP Sports Writer Published:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky forward Terrence Jones is playing good basketball heading into Wildcats' rematch with Indiana.

The sophomore hit a bit of slump after the subpar performance against the Hoosiers in December.

Jones was heavily criticized for his lackluster play after finishing with four points, one rebound and six turnovers in the Wildcats' 73-72 loss on Dec. 10.

He dislocated his left pinky finger in Kentucky's next game and was limited most of the rest of the month as his freshmen teammates carried Kentucky back to No. 1.

But Jones is healthy and playing well again.

He's averaging 14.4 points and 10.4 rebounds over his last five games and looks like the playmaker he would be this season when he was tabbed the Southeastern Conference's preseason player of the year.
