Duke Blue Devils Commit Tyus Jones Is “Excited and Honored” By Nike Hoop Summit Selection

Geoff Burke- USA TODAY Sports

Point guard Tyus Jones was selected to the U.S. squad by the Nike Hoop Summit recently, and his reaction to the news was as predictably humble as ever.

“I was just really excited, very excited and honored,” Jones said of his selection to USAB.com. “Honored because I get to represent USA Basketball again, and that’s a big honor. I’m just looking forward to trying to help that team win.”

It should be a competitive game, and should be a fun one to keep an eye on. Jones committed to the Duke Blue Devils in November and his play has improved every year for about the last four; he will eventually near his ceiling, but we do not appear to be near that point quite yet so in the meantime just enjoy the show.

We will be switching up the format a bit as far as @AllDave_AllDay goes in the next couple months, and it should be fun to see how things shake out. Feel free to hit me up on twitter if you have any feedback and stay warm out there. Jones will do his best to do that in Minnesota, but if the point guard can help reign in another state title for Apple Valley then something tells me he will feel pretty warm.
