Tre Jones came up just short in winning a second consecutive state championship with Apple Valley, but the highly recruited guard was named Minnesota's "Mr. Basketball" winner. 

Jones was playing in the McDonald's All-American Game in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday night, so wasn't in attendance to receive the award as the top senior player in the state at Target Center.

The Duke-bound point guard finished the All-American Game with 7 points and 8 assists. 

Jones beat out Daniel Oturu (Cretin-Derham Hall), Owen King (Caledonia), Gabe Kalscheur (DeLaSalle) and Calvin Wishart (Delano).
