Duke Freshman Tyus Jones Looking for Third Gold Medal, Teaching Subtleties of the Point to Isaiah Briscoe
At the age of 18.
The 6-foot-1 Apple Valley, MN native has already won gold medals at the 2012 FIBA U17 World Championship and the 2011 FIBA Americas U16 Championship.
When the FIBA Americas U18 World Championship begins Friday in Colorado Springs, CO, Jones will be in pursuit of his third gold in the last four years.
“I’m a little bit used to it,” Jones told SNY.tv by phone. “My goal in this one obviously is to win a gold medal and trying to be the best leader I can and the ultimate goal is to win the gold medal.”
