How can you follow up being the star of the Final Four and winning the national championship as a freshman?

Well, how about a hometown parade? That's a pretty good way to celebrate.

And that's just what Apple Valley, Minnesota, did for hometown hero Tyus Jones.

And to top it off, he also got a nice endorsement from Timberwolf Andrew Wiggins:

"That’s a great move for him. He accomplished the main goal in college and that’s to win a national championship. He’s a great point guard. I know he’ll be great in the league."
