Point guards Tyus Jones and Joel Berry have both been selected to the Jordan Brand Classic East squad, and that should make for some nice conversation going into that game. The East squad can only start one point guard, and you have to think it will either be Jones or Berry. Much thanks to Blue Devil Lair for the tweet below, and we will definitely be keeping track of the starting lineups here at Rant Sports Prep. My bet is that Jones will come out on top.
Tyus Jones & Joel Berry on the #TakeFlightJBC East team. Will be interesting to see which one starts.

Berry was successful in his state title quest this season, and Jones was not; we will just have to see if that trend continues in ACC play. The Duke Blue Devils certainly have the more heralded class, but the Tar Heels have been building a solid talent base over the years. Roy Williams has certainly been doing a decent recruiting job, but it comes nowhere near what they have been doing lately in Durham.
Anyways, the Jordan game is always a fun one to keep an eye on, and you can bet that you will get a preview of the game as well as a recap afterwards. Thanks as always.
