Apple Valley Point Guard Tyus Jones Leads Team to Win in Home Opener

Tyus Jones NCAA Basketball: Michigan State at Minnesota

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Tyus Jones recently committed to the Duke Blue Devils, but he has got other things to attend to before he goes to college. Jones has his sights set on a second state title in Minnesota, and if his developing game is any indication then Apple Valley seems to be on the fast track. They won their home opener tonight thanks to a great effort from their point guard who notched 38 points to go along with seven assists. Thanks to Iowa Elites for the tweet below, and for the twitter mention recently.

Jones will play with his good buddy Jahlil Okafor at the college level, and they announced their decision in a joint press conference. Okafor recently tweeted at Jones on twitter to go get that second state title, which was pretty cool too so keep an eye out for a piece later on that.

Until Apple Valley loses a game though, then they have to be the favorites to bring home state. Until then just do not bet against Jones especially at the high school level.

Thanks for reading folks and hope that your Thanksgiving leftovers have not run completely out yet. Keep an eye out too for pro basketball previews tomorrow morning, because that is how we do here at Rant Sports.
