Baylor Bears Forward Perry Jones Suspended

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
The Baylor Bears (18-2, 7-9) star freshman Perry Jones was suspended for tonights game against the Oklahoma Sooners (13-17, 5-11) and could be done for the season.

According to many media outlets, Jones received improper benefits and the NCAA looks to end his season.

Jones III averaged 13.9 points, and was the second-leading rebounder with 7.2 per game. He was a big part of Baylor's long 2-3 zone that featured two other players with 7-foot plus wingspans.

Without a frontcourt force, Baylor's tournament hopes could be diminished. Especially, seeing that the Bears are on the outside looking in.
