Tyus Jones recently committed to the Duke Blue Devils, much to the joy of Durham fans everywhere. ESPN analyst Paul Biancardi tweeted out to a question about Jones’ defense that the Apple Valley (MN) guard could handle elite defense at the college level. We will get a little glimpse tonight of jones’ defense, but more so we will be looking at what Jahlil Okafor is able to accomplish in the paint. Expect the big man to come out angry in this game and he could end up having a truly monster stat line to end the night.
Jones and Okafor will be teammates next season, but tonight they are enemies and they will not be too friendly because each will want to end the night in a win.
Much thanks to Biancardi for tweeting the following below, which is quite a sage answer.

Believe Biancardi is calling the game tonight if his twitter pictures are any indication, and it should be a night of high school basketball to remember. Currently watching it as I type this and Jones ended up getting the first steal of the game, which led to the game’s first points. The gym is absolutely packed in Minnesota, and will greatly enjoy settling in tonight and breaking this game down quarter by quarter.
That is all for today folks, but as always a little bit of fortune cookie wisdom.
