The analytics perspective
Tyus Jones has rated well by my statistics all season, even when scouts expected him to return for his sophomore year. Polished beyond his years as a playmaker, Jones posted an assist-to-turnover ratio near 3-to-1. He was an efficient scorer by virtue of 37.9 percent 3-point shooting and attempting more than four free throws per game, which he hit at an 88.9 percent clip.
