"We are very happy and proud to have Marion Jones back on our team in 2011," General Manager and Head Coach Nolan Richardson said. "She came on strong last year and she’s looking forward to starting another season with that experience under her belt. Our entire coaching staff is excited to have her back and we are looking forward to a great year from her on the court." Jones’ year-long dedication and hard work came to fruition in the final three games of the 2010 season when she averaged 10.6 points on 56.5 percent shooting from the field, 5.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 22.7 minutes a game. Jones earned her first start of the season in the final regular season game when she scored a season and career-high 14 points. "I am especially pleased and humbled that Coach Richardson and the entire Tulsa Shock family have demonstrated their confidence in my development and my ability to positively contribute to the team, the growth of the organization, and the Tulsa community."
