One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals! So proud of what we accomplished at @eurobasketwomen 💪🏼 Secured our place in the Olympic Qualifying Tournament and made history finishing 4th in Europe ✅ So excited to continue the journey and see how far this team can go 🇬🇧♥️ #TeamGB #LoveThisTeam
Jones was part of the historic squad that reached the semi-finals of EuroBasket Women in 2019, whilst also competing in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Belgrade, Serbia, earlier this year.
The Mystics had a 10-5 record in the league last season before it was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, and they will continue their roster announcements this week.
