Look who's on the cover of Sports Illustrated following his remarkable performance in the NCAA men's basketball National Championship game.

Tyus Jones of Duke, the former Minnesota Mr. Basketball winner from Apple Valley High School, showed the world why his teammates call him "Tyus Stones" when he came up big in the closing minutes of Monday's title-winning performance against Wisconsin.

Jones hit a pair of late 3-pointers and pressure-packed free throws on his way to a game-high 23 points. He was named the most outstanding player of the Final Four.

Jones is also on the cover of The Herald Sun, the newspaper out of Durham, North Carolina, where Duke is located.

Here's what everyone else around the country is saying about Jones.
