The Duke Blue Devils played Livingston in an exhibition game Tuesday night and it was the debut of last year's Minnesota Mr. Basketball winner Tyus Jones. Jones, per usual, was extremely efficient.

According to Duke's men's basketball website, Jones dished out a game-high 11 assists while scoring four points and pulling down four rebounds in the blowout win.

Be sure to watch the video from the site to see an awesome lob pass from Jones to Justise Winslow for an alley-oop dunk.

Jones, a Apple Valley star, chatted with Blue Devil Nation after the game, and said he "could care less" about scoring points.

Wednesday will mark the exhibition debut for former Robbinsdale Cooper shooting guard Rashad Vaughn at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

Reid Travis, the former DeLaSalle power forward, will make his Stanford Cardinal exhibition debut on Thursday. Travis went scoreless in a team scrimmage on Oct. 22, according to GoStanford.com.

Jones, Vaughn and Travis were called the "Big Three" of Minnesota's basketball Class of 2014.
