Tyus Jones, Trevor Mbakwe, Rodney Williams in Eagan tonight


If outdoor baseball in downtown doesn't do it for you, there's another ticket in town that should fill your sports void that is July.

According to Ryan James of Northstar Hoops, the Howard Pulley Summer Pro City League is having quite the extravaganza tonight.

Yes, that's Apple Valley's Tyus Jones, a consensus top three recruit in the nation. As if that wasn't enticing enough, top 50 recruit Reid Travis will join him, along with Philadelphia 76ers signee Rodney Williams and top 2015 Minnesota recruit Jarvis Johnson. As you can see, they get the task of facing Williams former gopher teammate and soon-to-be 76ers summer league front court mate Trevor Mbakwe, along with a slew of current Gophers. Still not convinced? Here's the game two lineup:

Gopher standout guard Dre Hollins is featured along with Gopher mainstays Maurice Walker and Maverick Ahanmisi.

All the action starts at seven from the High Performance Academy in Eagan. Almost two years ago to the day, headliners Mbakwe and Jones shared the court in the same league.

Reunited, and for Minnesota basketball fans, it feels so good.
