Back in 2015, Tyus helped Duke win the NCAA Tournament and was named the event’s Most Outstanding Player.

With Tyus in the NBA, first for the hometown Minnesota Timberwolves and now with the Memphis Grizzlies, Tre came to Duke in 2018 aiming to claim his own championship glory.

As a freshman, Tre Jones was the starting point guard on Duke’s 32-6 team. Classmates Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish became NBA draft lottery picks, but they fell one win short of the Final Four.

“I feel like a lot of different aspects in my game grew this year,” Tre Jones said. “I feel like I was able to show that I can shoot the ball much better than I did last year. I think that was one of the biggest things that I improved on this year.”

With a 25-6 record entering the ACC tournament, Jones and the Blue Devils believed they were ready to repeat as league champions and challenge for the national title before the sports world came to a halt.

“It still doesn’t seem real,” Tre Jones said. “It still isn’t going on at this point because we are stuck at home. I think the way the whole team reacted definitely brought us closer. We all saw how bought in, how much we wanted it as a group, not just individually but totally as a group. We all felt like we were in a good position in March as a team and where we were headed.”

Jones said not being allowed to compete for a national championship did enter his mind as he mulled whether or not to end his college career and enter the NBA draft. In the end, he felt it was time to move to the sport’s highest level.

  Native Instruments' $50 retro synth plug-in is currently free The '80s had no shortage of massive-sounding synthesizers, but many of them have either gone out to pasture or are prohibitively expensive on the secondhand market. Software companies often try to digitally recreate those synths as affordable plug-ins, though, and to keep musicians busy while they're locked inside, Native Instruments has made its Analog Dreams software -- which usually costs $50 -- free to download. That means anyone with a USB keyboard or controller can work on their Duran Duran covers or an isolation-induced synth pop opus.

Outside of basketball, the brothers have important things to do with family. Their mother, Debbie Jones, was treated for breast cancer last year. Her treatments leave her in the high-risk category for severe complications should she contract coronavirus.

“Not letting her do anything or go anywhere,” Tre Jones said. “Trying to go to the grocery store for her and my grandma. Not letting them go anywhere or expose themselves or take any chances with this. We see how serious this is.”

Their mother’s illness was a harsh dose of reality about life’s fragility for the Jones brothers. This situation, having basketball taken away due to a public health emergency, is another.
