Tyus Jones is a point guard with an exciting college basketball career in front of him, but his illustrious high school career came to a close on Thursday night.

He scored 37 points in the double overtime loss, and wishing him the best when it comes to whatever injury he ended up leaving the game with. Jones will be on most (if not all) of the All American teams though, so he still has quite a lot of basketball to play this year if he can get healthy again. That is definitely great news for any basketball lovers out there; after those games, his head will most likely move on to preparing for his freshman season with the Duke Blue Devils.
There has to be high optimism there, and even read earlier that Jabari Parker has not decided whether he would leave school or not at this point.
Imagining Jones and Parker on the same team is mind boggling, and that is before we even throw Jahlil Okafor’s name in the ring. Yes. The Blue Devils will be the preseason number one, but if Parker stays the mentality has to be chamionship-or-bust. On a different note, here is hoping that Coach K is having a full recovery for whatever got the better of him earlier this week.
Upcoming this Saturday for the Blur Devils is a matchup with their rival North Carolina Tar Heels, and if Parker leaves it would be his final game at Cameron Indoor Stadium, so make it to that game if you are in the area and have the means. Should be a barn burner.
Got another Prep piece that is concerning Okafor’s upcoming visit to Durham this weekend, and then also keep an eye out for a pro basketball draft slideshow.
