Coach Terrence Jones has over 22 years of basketball experience as a player, coach and player development instructor. Coach Jones has always been a student of the game. As a child, he didn’t start playing basketball until the age of 14. With little help from coaches or relatives (Coach Jones’ Uncle played for the New York Knicks), he taught himself how to play the game of basketball by watching games on television and tapes on basketball teachings of various coaches. In high school he was one of the top players in his high school history (ranked 14th in the state). He later went to UTSA to become at team captain as a sophomore. After UTSA coach Jones still had the desire to play the game of basketball. After playing in Europe and a short stint in Mexico, he decided that playing basketball wasn’t a passion, developing players.Read Full Bio
