Senior Amber Jones brought the Purchase gym to its feet on Feb. 4, when she became the sixth member of the 1,000 point club for female athletics, sinking a three pointer in the second quarter after entering the game nine points short of 1,000.

Jones, a shooting guard and one of three captains isn’t new to the 1,000 point club. She scored 1,000 points in high school as well.

“It took me four years to reach 1,000 points in high school and only took 2.5 years in college," Jones said.

Purchase was down until the fourth quarter in the game against the SUNY Delhi Broncos, when they tied the game to bring it to overtime, where they were able to win in 71-68 after Jones scored the last points of the game with another three point shot.

Jones grew up in the Bronx and has been playing basketball since she was six years old. Still passionate about the sport, she works four jobs, is a full time student and a committed athlete. Jones says she wants to pursue early childhood education in her future but is also keep her options open as she has been offered to play basketball in a camp overseas.
