This is Amelia Rayno's third season on the Gophers men's basketball beat. She learned college basketball in North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!), where fanhood is not an option. In 2010, she joined the Star Tribune after graduating from Boston's Emerson College, which sadly had no exciting D-I college hoops to latch onto. Amelia has also worked on the sports desk at the Boston Globe and interned at the Detroit News.

Tyus Jones sets official visits

Posted by: Amelia Rayno under College basketball, Gophers players Updated: August 13, 2013 - 12:36 PM

Tyus Jones is on the University of Minnesota campus today for an unofficial visit and to sit down with the coaches, something he's done several times with the Gophers due to the proximity.

At the same time, the Apple Valley star set up four officials, listing them via Twitter.

Jones can still take a fifth official if he so desires -- also on his short list, but not receiving a visit are Michigan State and Ohio State.

Duke, the presumed favorite by many, is the last visit planned.
