CARBONDALE, Ill. — Southern Illinois juniors Marcus Domask and Lance Jones were both recognized on Tuesday when the Missouri Valley Conference announced its men’s basketball All-Conference teams.

Domask, a forward from Waupun, Wis., was named Second-Team All-Conference. Jones, a guard from Evanston, picked up All-Defensive team honors.

After missing most of last season with a foot injury, Domask has started every game for the Salukis this year and leads the team in scoring (15.1), rebounding (5.1) and assists (3.9). He has scored 20+ points nine times this season, including a streak of four-straight 20-point outings from Dec. 28-Jan. 15.

Jones has started all but two games and leads the MVC in steals at 2.00 steals per game. He currently ranks 15th all-time at SIU with 122 career thefts and is seventh in career steals per game (1.43).

Both Jones and Domask topped the 1,000-point career scoring plateau during the same game versus Indiana State on Feb. 19.

The All-Conference teams are selected in a vote of the league’s head coaches, sports information directors, beat writers and radio announcers.
