WATCH: UTEP Freshman Kelvin Jones destroys a backboard

New, 7 comments

Miner freshman Kelvin Jones showed off some back in the day muscle.

Hoopers now a days get done with a hard workout, then grab video of each other doing some high flying acts around the rim, but UTEP freshman Kelvin Jones took it another level in a Throwback Thursday video posted to his Twitter account.

The 6'11 big man shows off his strength, throwing down the dunk and surprisingly to him, brings down the house, literally.

"He played for two years at Hobbs where he grew from 6-4 to 6-11."  Head Coach Tim Floyd said in May. "He has been a really diligent worker on his own in the offseason. He gets up to that gym every night about 9:30 and goes for an hour and a half, two hours on his individual skills. We think he's got a really, really great future."

A year after being a Prop 48 athlete at UTEP, fans will hope to see more this muscle in the Don for the next four years.
