Teven Jones

April 7, 2014

CHARLOTTESVILLE - Virginia men's basketball head coach Tony Bennett announced Monday (April 7) that sophomore guard Teven Jones (Kannapolis, N.C.) is leaving the Cavaliers' program.

"Teven informed me today that he is leaving the Virginia basketball program and will be looking for another school where he will have a better opportunity for playing time," Bennett said. "Teven's role on this team and attitude were a significant part of our success this year. I understand his desire to play more and we will support him moving forward."

The 6-0 Jones averaged 1.7 points in 59 career games at Virginia. He played in 29 of 37 games in 2013-14, averaging 0.5 points and 0.2 assists in 4.3 minutes per game. In 2012-13, Jones started nine of 30 games and scored a career-high 13 points in Virginia's 80-64 win against North Texas.

"I want to thank all of the coaches and my teammates for giving me the opportunity to be part of a special program," Jones said. "I would also like to thank the fans for their support over the past two seasons. This was the closest team that I've ever been a part of and it hurts to leave. But, I'm looking forward to continuing my basketball career at a new school."
