  • Back in April, Terrence Jones reached out to a table holding six baseball hats and picked up a black Washington Huskies cap as the assembled crowd at Portland (Ore.) Jefferson High let out a roar.

    Three weeks later, he officially changed course and announced he would go to Kentucky instead.

    Now, Jones and his new team may meet the team he briefly committed to in the semifinals of the Maui Invitational Tuesday night.

    The 6-foot-8 Jones put on a show in posting 29 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks and 2 steals in a 76-64 victory over Oklahoma.

    PISCATAWAY, N.J. — The best news for Rutgers fans coming out of Sunday may not have been the team’s 16-point drilling of Miami at home.

    No, the best news was that Kyle Anderson was there to see it.

    The 6-foot-8 Anderson sat about 10 rows up behind the basket with his mother, Suzanne. He had a perfect view of Dane Miller’s breakaway dunk that sent the student section into a frenzy late in the game.

    Rutgers announced Sunday that guard Malick Kone of Guinea has signed to compete for the Scarlet Knights.

    Kone joins forward Kadeem Jack (Queens, N.Y.), power forward/center Greg Lewis (Baltimore, Md.), point guard Myles Mack (Paterson, N.J.), power forward/center Derrick Randall (Brooklyn, N.Y.), guard Jerome Seagears (Baltimore, Md.) and shooting guard Mike Taylor (Brooklyn, N.Y.) in the highest-rated men’s basketball recruiting class in school history.

    “We are very excited to announce Malick to complete our incoming class,” head coach Mike Rice said. “Recruiting these young men to Rutgers University has been a very rewarding process. We are confident that they have the talent, character and work ethic to make a significant impact on the future of Rutgers basketball.”
