SUMMARY

Tre Jones was the floor general for a deep and talented Duke team that had 3 players drafted in the lottery. Now entering his sophomore season, he'll be expected to lead a new group of freshmen with their sites on the NBA.

Jones is a game manager that takes good care of the ball and knows how to run a team. He's a decent finisher around the rim and is capable of making pull jumpers off the dribble. 

His most glaring weakness is his shooting. Jones only made 27 of 103 (26.2%) from 3 and was often left wide open to shoot uncontested shots which bogged down Duke's half court offense.

 

Defensively he's one of the best on ball defenders in the country.
