Theodore 'Mookie' Jones was a small forward for Syracuse University.

Jones led his high school team Peekskill to three New York State Class A championships.

Jones would have a nagging leg injury at the beginning of his freshman season at Syracuse, forcing him to miss some of the early season games. His leg would recover, and he would play in nine games before tearing a muscle in his right hip, ending his freshman season. He would receive a medical redshirt, and gain another year of eligibility at Syracuse.

Jones improved his shooting touch over the summer, and shot a team high 44.6% from three point range his second year. He would have a limited role that season, however, as he struggled defensively and was poor with ball movement on the offense. He was the eighth man for most the season, though coach Jim Boeheim would often go only seven players deep. Jones would break his index finger late in the regular season, forcing him to miss the rest of the regular season. He was ready to play by time the NCAA tournament rolled around, but he did not play again that year.

Jones was one of the team's best shooters his sophomore season. However, he had a reputation for being a quick shooter, and not looking for teammates. That coupled with poor defensive efforts gave him very little meaningful playing time that season, despite shooting nearly 42% from three point range.

Jones barely saw playing time his junior season and was switched to the guard postion There were ten other scholarship players ahead of him in the rotation, and he never played any meaningful minutes. He would leave school and the team for personal reasons after the Pitt game on January 16th.
