Tyus Jones NCAA Basketball: Michigan State at Minnesota

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Recently saw the tweet below and it appears the Minnesota Gophers are officially out of the Tyus Jones’ sweepstakes. They were never a truly viable option for the young point guard, but it is still a shame that this is now official. Let’s be real though; this was inevitable and it was only a matter of when.

Jones and his good friend and top ranked center Jahlil Okafor are close to a package recruiting deal and wherever they go will be a national title contender. A piece later today will point out that they are the best package recruiting deal in NCAA history. Not too shabby.

There are some quality teams left in the running for Jones and an elite point guard deserved an elite program. We will just have to see what happens here.

Watch HS Hoops Coach Headbutt Referee

There is absolutely no excuse for this to happen ever. During an argument about a call, Neshaminy (Pa.) high school basketball coach Jerry Devine decided it would be a good idea to headbutt the referee to prove his point. Devine was then ejected from the gym and could now face criminal charges for his actions as well as losing his teaching and coaching job.
