Shooting Guard: Jarrius Jackson

Playing next to Ross in 2005 was a sophomore from Louisiana, Jarrius Jackson, who also had a fantastic tournament run. That duo was the catalyst behind the final Sweet 16 appearance for legendary head coach Bob Knight.

Jackson averaged 15.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game in that tournament. That puts his performance just ahead of what Matt Mooney did in the 2019 tournament (13.2 points per game).

In round one, Jackson had 19 points, 6 assists, and four boards as Tech humbled the Bruins. That day, he was 8-12 from the field.

Against Gonzaga, Jackson posted 18 points, 3 assists, and 5 rebounds. That included a 7-9 shooting effort from the floor.

However, Jackson had a bit of a disappointing game against the Mountaineers. Scoring only 9 points, he collected 5 rebounds but handed out no assists and he went just 3-11 from the field. Still, he put together the best run any shooting guard in Texas Tech history has had in the NCAA Tournament according to the stats.
