There has to be a silver lining from the cruel April Fool’s Twitter joke played by former UVA backup Teven Jones and his former roommate, Justin Anderson.
UVa men’s basketball head coach Tony Bennett announced Monday (April 7) that sophomore guard Teven Jones (Kannapolis, N.C.) is leaving the Cavaliers’ program.
Rising junior point guard Teven Jones seemed very much noncommittal about his future at UVa. following the Cavs’ 61-59 loss to Michigan State in the Sweet 16 Friday night in Madison Square Garden.
A late 7-0 UVa. run tied the game with 1:53 left, but Michigan State made the big plays down the stretch, and got the benefit of a controversial no-call, and the fourth-seeded Spartans advanced to the Elite Eight with a 61-59 win over the top-seeded Cavaliers Friday night in Madison Square Garden in New York.
The first thing going through the mind of Teven Jones as he climbed the ladder to take his snip at the net being cut down to mark UVa.’s first outright regular-season ACC championship since 1981: “Don’t fall down.”
Teven Jones can dunk. First time I saw him at the start of his postgrad year at Fishburne Military School, he stole the show in a dunk contest that FMS coach Ed Huckaby arranged for cadets and kids from the Waynesboro YMCA.
UVa. led by 19 at the half, and had to withstand a late second half Florida State run, to post a 78-66 win over the Seminoles in ACC action on Saturday in Charlottesville.
What happened to Anthony Gill? Gill, third on the team in scoring at 9.2 points per game, didn’t get off the bench in the first half. He did end up playing 10 minutes in the second half, scoring seven points with a +/- of +9.
A 6-0 second-half run pulled Norfolk State even, but Virginia responded with an extended 20-5 run to regain control and held off a couple of late Spartan charges en route to a 66-56 win Monday night in Charlottesville. UVa. (9-3) led by as many as 10 in the first half, but Norfolk State (8-5) was able to hang around.
The line score isn’t what you’d call impressive: nine minutes, one point, one assist, one turnover. But Teven Jones might have been UVa.’s MVP in its 59-56 loss to #14 VCU Tuesday night. Jones entered the game with seven minutes left in the first half, and the Cavs trailing 21-14.
Tonight’s UVa.-VCU Top 25 matchup is a classic clash of styles. Virginia would love the game to be in the 50s or low 60s; VCU would prefer a game in the 80s. Who controls the pace will determine who wins the game. OK, so we knew that already. Who controls the pace? I like Virginia, and here’s why: defense.
Fishburne Military School alum Teven Jones was on the floor for two key stretches of UVa.’s upset win over #3 Duke Thursday night. The 73-68 win and the court-storm response of Virginia fans will be memories of a lifetime for the redshirt freshman.
Teven Jones helped UVa. embark upon an eight-game winning streak that turned what had started off as a forgettable season into something else entirely. As winter turns to spring, Virginia is on the verge of going back to the NCAA Tournament, and Jones has played an integral role in that march to success.
There was little pretty about Virginia’s 46-38 win over Tennessee on Wednesday, except the obvious fact that for Coach Tony Bennett and his squad, a W is a W.
It was a small sample size, admittedly, but through three games, two of them ugly losses, and a stretch that saw Virginia average 54 points per contest, it was looking like a lost season in the making for Coach Tony Bennett. Enter Teven Jones, a redshirt freshman from Fishburne Military School, who had to sit out the opener, a 63-59 loss to George Mason, for an undisclosed violation of team rules, then Virginia’s split of its first two games in the Preseason NIT with a pinched nerve that had threatened to put him on the shelf for an extended period of time.
Virginia coach Tony Bennett desperately needs to find a solution at point guard – with senior starter Jontel Evans and sophomore backup Malcolm Brogdon on the bench for God-knows-how-long. He may have found the answer – in 2012 Fishburne Military School alum Teven Jones.
Virginia redshirt freshman guard Teven Jones (Kannapolis, N.C.) has been suspended for the Cavaliers’ two closed scrimmages and the regular season-opener at George Mason on Nov. 9 for a violation of team rules.

With UVa. head coach Tony Bennett watching, top recruit Teven Jones tried to lead a Fishburne comeback against rival Massanutten Military Academy, but the rally came up short as the Colonels held on for a 101-95 win Saturday night.

Ed Huckaby had never seen it before. OK, he’s seen teams run a backdoor pick to free up a guy cutting the basket for an alley-oop pass and a slam dunk. “That was the first time I saw a team run an alley-oop for a point guard,” saw Huckaby, the head coach of the Fishburne […]
UVa. found its point guard of the future – and he’ll be playing this season on the postgrad basketball team at Fishburne Military School.
