ACC Basketball Tournament - Championship
 CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA - MARCH 16: Teammates Zion Williamson #1, RJ Barrett #5, and Tre Jones #3 of the Duke Blue Devils react after defeating the Florida State Seminoles 73-63 in the championship game of the 2019 Men’s ACC Basketball Tournament at Spectrum Center on March 16, 2019 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Our pal Brett Friedlander has a great column up on Tre Jones, his brother Tyus, and the latest resemblance the younger bears to the the older: an ability to rise to the occasion.

Maybe it’s time for the Tyus Stones nickname to be passed down too.

By the way, here’s a really interesting trivia question and we don’t know if there’s an answer or not: does any other school have two or more sets of brothers who have won ACC and/or national championships, whether separately or together?

For Duke it’s the Plumlees (Miles, Mason and Marshall), Kellys (Ryan and Sean) and the Joneses. Talk about #Brotherhood!
