The Cardinals have two star point guards
Jones and Johnson were second and third on the team in points scored on the night respectively with 18 and 17.
They also led the team in assists. Johnson with 8 and Jones with 4. They are true point guards that can do it all on the offensive end. They have high end court vision and seem to always make passes that not many around the country have the ability or wherewithal to complete.
While both are at their best slashing to the basket, Johnson especially showed that he can shoot the ball at a better clip this year when he knocked down a couple of threes in this matchup. Jones is also comfortable behind the arc from his time at Radford and that is carrying over to 2020 with the Cardinals.
While underrated nationally to this point, this tandem is going to be near-impossible to compete with as a backcourt as the season trudges on. Offensively, it’s very hard to imagine there is a head-and-shoulders better tandem in the country.
With Jones and Johnson, they will give the Cardinals a chance to be better every game and limit long spurts of scoring droughts. If one is not playing well, the other can carry the offense. If one is in foul trouble there is no beat missed.
These two at the helm gives me no concerns over what Louisville can be offensively when they get into ACC play.
