Jones, Newton get invites to NBA camp

Posted: June 12, 2013

Archbishop Carroll's Derrick Jones and Neumann-Goretti's Ja'Quan Newton received invitations Tuesday to this week's NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp at the University of Virginia.

Newton, a 6-foot-2 guard, is considered the city's top senior. He led the Saints to last season's Catholic League title, averaging 18 points. He has offers from almost every major college program and is expected to list his final options sometime this summer. Georgetown, Villanova, and Miami appear to be the leaders.

Jones, a 6-6 sophomore forward, is quickly emerging as the area's next big recruit. His recruitment increased tremendously last season as he led the Patriots by averaging 14 points and 10 rebounds.
