'Big Three' watch
A weekly update on Minnesotans Tyus Jones (Apple Valley, Duke), Reid Travis (DeLaSalle, Stanford) and Rashad Vaughn (Cooper, UNLV):
Jones posted a career-high 22 points in Duke's 79-65 win over Pittsburgh on Monday, but if you've been paying close attention, the big game wasn't a surprise. According to statistics compiled by the Duke Chronicle, in eight nationally televised games Jones is averaging 14.6 points on 49.2 percent shooting from the field, 41.4 percent shooting from three-point range and 91.8 percent free-throw shooting. In games that aren't on national TV? Those averages drop to 6.5 points, 34 percent from the field, 30 percent on threes and 78.8 percent on free throws.
