 DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke freshman point guard Tyus Jones says he and veteran Quinn Cook ''don't look at it as a competition.''
The highly touted recruit could beat out Cook when the season gets started in a few months. In an interview with The Associated Press, Jones says it's ''never a rivalry'' because ''we all have one goal in mind.''
Jones arrived on campus last month as one of four members of one of the nation's top-rated recruiting classes, along with big man Jahlil Okafor, small forward Justise Winslow and guard Grayson Allen.
They've spent plenty of time in the weight room and on the court in pickup games this summer, getting used to playing with each other and with a solid group of returners that includes Cook and fellow guard Rasheed Sulaimon.
