Excellent choice Mr. Jones. Great coach and program but hope you enjoy the end of the bench...

Good for him. If one has NBA aspirations, Duke is a great choice. If one wants to use their basketball abilities to get a top-notch education in preparation for a career outside of basketball, Duke is a great choice. (It's the same way I felt about the local kid last week who chose Stanford - it's hard to knock a kid who chooses to attend Stanford when he's got the opportunity).

It will be interesting to see if Tyus starts flopping more during this coming season at Apple Valley. That way, he can hit the ground running when he becomes a Dukie.

WHO CARES?? Finally this is over and we will likely never hear from him again. Much like many of the Minnesota players that move on to so called greener pastures.

Surpise, surprise. All things considered, it's probably where he belongs.

As expected by most level-headed people months ago.

Why would you boooo his decision? If he had picked Minnesota over every other school in the country, I'd have serious questions about the education he got at Apple Valley.

Get a life you Trolls, where's the MN nice? Nobody elite is picking the U of M until they get serious about the Athletic Complex. If you think The Barn and sprawled campus are a draw you are dreaming....

ericgus55 - NBA aspirations? He'll probably go down in history and have a thriving NBA career similar to the other 5 star players who chose Duke. Just like Elliot Williams, Ryan Kelly, Andre Dawkins, Brian Zoubek, Greg Paulus, Shaun Lingingston and Demarcus Nelson. Those guys are killing it in the NBA.

If you intend to travel to Duke, don't blink you will miss what they call a campus. Too much attention is given to high schoolers these days. The only reason why I am responding is because the Startribune has this as a top story. It's sad to see how far we have fallen.
