A weekly update on Minnesotans Tyus Jones (Apple Valley, Duke), Reid Travis (DeLa­Salle, Stanford) and Rashad Vaughn (Cooper, UNLV):

Jones was named national freshman of the week, narrowly edging out teammate Justice Winslow after averaging 16.5 points, 8.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 rebounds in victories over North Carolina and Clemson. Duke has won eight in a row; Jones had just seven points and nine assists in its most recent victory, 91-86 at Virginia Tech. ... Travis appears to be hitting his stride once more, now seven games back from a stress fracture in his leg. In the past two games, he combined for 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Cardinal. …

Vaughn remains sidelined indefinitely because of a torn meniscus in his left knee.
