Some thought it a mistake for Tyus Jones to attend and play for Duke with a point guard already established. Yes, Duke has a senior guard in Quinn Cook, but those of us who watch Duke closely know that CoachK has no issue with playing two point guards simultaneously or having them platoon minutes. Moreover, this situation is good for both players who will be able to learn from each other, a sort of Montessori situation. Quinn will be the elder statesman in the back-court and Tyus the new kid on the block soaking up information on the Duke system and the expectations of the position. The willingness to go to a school despite a senior guard in place shows that for Tyus Jones it is more about the journey to win and to improve and nothing more underscoring that fact this article by Joedy McCreary.
