Maybe the Final Four has Tre Jones thinking.
Late Saturday night, the Blue Devil freshman posted on his Instagram with the caption "Year 2?" and sparked some buzz as to possibility of Jones returning to Duke for a sophomore season instead of turning pro.
Team spokesman Mike DeGeorge did not have any further information on Jones' decision.
Jones added to the suspense with another post less than 24 hours later, which portrayed himself sitting in his locker during the NCAA tournament with his jersey hanging behind him.
If Jones does indeed come back to Durham, he'll be looking to build on a freshman campaign which he ended with some momentum. The Apple Valley, Minn., native scored a then-career-best 18 points in the ACC tournament title game against Florida State, only to top it with 22 against Virginia Tech in the Sweet 16, knocking down five 3-pointers in the win.
Jones will need to work on his shooting from outside if he wants to become an elite two-way player. He shot just 26.2 percent from beyond the arc for the season, but used his stellar defense to finish second in ACC Defensive Player of the Year.

A junior from just outside Philadelphia, Mitchell is probably reminding you how the Eagles won the Super Bowl this year and that the Phillies are definitely on the rebound. Outside of The Chronicle, he majors in Economics, minors in Statistics and is working toward the PJMS certificate, in addition to playing trombone in the Duke University Marching Band. And if you're getting him a sandwich with beef and cheese outside the state of Pennsylvania, you best not call it a "Philly cheesesteak."
