Tyus Jones, a 6-foot-2 junior point guard from Apple Valley who is ranked #1 in the country by ESPN, returned from a back injury to lead the Eagles to wins over Eastview Friday and Cooper Saturday at the Target Center. GopherHole.com caught up with Jones to learn the latest on his season and recruitment.
Gopher Hole: What was the atmosphere like playing at the Target Center?
Tyus Jones: It was a good atmosphere. A bunch of people came out for the game, so it was a lot of fun to be able to play at the Target Center.
Gopher Hole: How different is it from playing in your high school gym with a packed gym?
Tyus Jones: It is a little different. The court is bigger. You get winded a little bit easier and it is an arena compared to a high school gym, so it is bigger, but I liked it. It was a lot of fun and we enjoyed ourselves out there.
