Keeping up with the Jones: Apple Valley junior gets AP award
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Apple Valley junior guard Tre Jones has been selected as the Minnesota Associated Press Player of the Year for high school boys basketball.
Jones led the Eagles to their third Class 4A state championship in five years. He had 24 points and 18 rebounds in a victory over fellow AP all-state pick McKinley Wright and Champlin Park in the title game last weekend.
Jones is the younger brother of Tyus Jones, who was a three-time winner of the AP Player of the Year award for Apple Valley from 2012-14. He’s currently playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Joining Jones and Wright, a senior, on the first team are Lakeville North senior Nathan Reuvers, Maple Grove senior Brad Davison and Rochester John Marshall sophomore Matthew Hurt.
