Apparently Dominique Jones has never heard of Villanova guard Scottie Reynolds — a 2007-2008 second team All-Big East selection.

In preperation for USF’s game against Villanova on Saturday at noon over at the Sun Dome, I casually asked Jones in a conversation what he thought of Reynolds.

“Who?” Jones replied. “Who? I don’t know. I know we play Villanova, but I don’t know who Scottie is.”

I asked again, “Never heard of him?”

“Nope, nuh uh,” as Jones smiled.

I guess when you’re averaging 18.8 ppg like Jones is you can say whatever you want. Jones, a sophomore, is playing in perhaps his best stretch of basketball at USF.

Jones had 26 points, 10 rebounds and was four assists shy of a triple-double in Tuesday night’s 70-61 win over DePaul.

Reynolds is averaging 15.2 ppg that includes a 40 point effort in an overtime win over Seton Hall on Jan. 1.

Welp, one thing is for certain, Jones will meet Reynolds at noon on Saturday.
