Who is NBA Star Jones' supporting girlfriend Alyssa Goehner?
You must be pretty familiar with the beautiful lady that hopped the fence and made it to the base of the elevated court to hug the then Duke's player, Tyus Jones, at the end of the match against Wisconsin. That must have left you wondering who the lady was.
Tyus' girlfriend since high school, Alyssa, is an avid volleyball player, an outside hitter, with determination to make it into the U.S national squad someday. Following the footsteps of her mother, she was a standout at Lakeville North High School and has been taking the form along with her to the University of Minnesota, a.k.a. Gophers.

You can't find couples that are glued together as strong as this lovebirds. Their similar upbringing and identical passion for sports explain how their relationship must have evolved. Even at the time when Tyus left the state to play for Duke in 2015, she was quoted heaping praise on him, “"It's cool to hear his stories about how he's doing down there. He'll do great things. I'm really excited for him.”
NBA power couple: the girlfriend and boyfriend enjoy respective tall heights
The 6ft 2 inches tall Timberwolves basketball player makes an adorable pair with the gorgeous Goehner, who stands roughly 5 ft 11 inches tall. It feels like ages have passed since they commenced dating, and they will hopefully keep the flames burning forever.
Flirting with Kylie Jenner:
The three-time Minnesota AP Player of the year was recently in buzz when he apparently teamed up with the Duke mate Jahlil Okafor to hit on Kendall and Kylie Jenner using Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” lyrics. Neither the celebrity sisters nor his girlfriend Goehner has reacted on the matter. She won’t be minding that, will she?
Jones, who idolizes the legendary Michael Jordan, inherits the lofty height and caliber from his 6 feet 6 inches tall father Rob and other members of his family, who too have tried their hands at playing basketball professionally. Foxsports.com reports that it was actually his family's basketball competitiveness that boosted Tyson Jones' rise.
Along with another significant player Quinn Cook, Tyus played a great role in the title-winning NCAA campaign of 2015 bagging the NCAA final fours most outstanding player in the process.

Once inducted into the national class of 2014’s top-ranked basketball player by ESPN, Jones has managed to live up to the expectation. With stellar performances in three gold-medal winning FIBA campaign for US age level squad of U16 (2011), U17 (2012), and U18 (2014), he seems to be knocking at the door of the senior team for now.
The twenty-year-old, who was drafted as the 24th overall pick (in the 2015 NBA draft) by Cleveland Cavaliers before his move to Minnesota, has many accomplishments waiting for him in his future endeavors. Who knows? Maybe someday, the headlines will read something like:
“American couple Tyus and Goehner wins Olympic gold in basketball and volleyball respectively.”

Valued at $85.5 million in the market, Tyus Jones is said to have a net worth of $6463212 and the enormous salary for $1339680.
