Jabari Parker continues to get back more of his athleticism. He also handled the ball well today and had some nice drives to the basket. Didn't shoot it that well from the outside.
Matt Jones shot the ball well as usual. Physically, he is just not on the same level as the Harrison twins who are on his team. Nigel Williams-Goss has him strength wise also. But Jones can really shoot and will be effective in Duke's system. Part of finding the right fit is finding a program that values what you are best at.

Is Matt taking part in the three-point shooting contest?

I don't expect Matt Jones to start. Will know more tomorrow. Not for sure if he is in the 3-point contest but I fully expect him to be in it.
Matt Jones is in the 3-point contest.
Thanks Jerry. Looks like Jabari will be in the dunk contest as well.
