A Different Court (video)
WACO, Texas -
Women's basketball player Melissa Jones will spend this weekend on a different kind of court. The senior guard was one of five nominees, narrowed down from a field of 49, selected to the Baylor Homecoming Court. Megan Robinson, representing the Baylor Songleaders and Spirit Squads, was chosen the Queen, Jones and three others will serve as Princesses.
Jones, nominated by the Baylor `B' Association, will spend the weekend participating in Homecoming Festivities which among other include riding in Saturday's Homecoming Parade and being honored at halftime of Baylor's football game against Kansas State.
The Thornton, Colo., native, was selected after an intensive interview process. The candidates are selected based on the four categories; scholarship, philanthropy, spiritual commitment and poise.
"I think it speaks volumes about Melissa that she was one of the five selected to the Homecoming Court. She is very deserving of this honor and we are extremely proud of her," said head coach Kim Mulkey.
