Tyus Jones is probably pinching himself that it has all gone by so fast, but his double-double to get a win on Senior Night was quite brilliant and thought that it deserved re-mentioning here at Rant Sports Prep. Much thanks to Chris Long for tweeting this below, and it will be onto the postseason for Apple Valley (MN) and their star point guard.

Jones committed to the Duke Blue Devils back in November, and his three point shooting and ability to make his teammates better will make them the favorite to win the ACC next season. It also probably does not hurt that the Blue Devils also have Jahlil Okafor and Justise Winslow committed for next year, and it would certainly be shocking if they were not the preseason number one at least to start the year.
Jones should truly enjoy what is left of his high school career, and it has been my prediction here at Rant Sports Prep for some time that he will be hoisting another state title by season’s end. One more Prep piece coming today, and then also be sure to keep an eye out for a slideshow about a certain Big Ten school’s March Madness hopes.
