Baylor guard LaceDarius Dunn is free to return to classes because his suspension from school was lifted at an on-campus hearing late Wednesday, a source close to the program told

An official announcement is forthcoming.

Dunn remains indefinitely suspended from the basketball team because of last week's felony charge stemming from a domestic dispute with the mother of his child. It's unclear when Baylor coach Scott Drew will lift that suspension or if Dunn will miss games. But Wednesday's development means the All-America candidate shouldn't become an academic casualty for the second semester, meaning Dunn will be allowed to play for the Bears during the Big 12 season as long as Drew allows him to play for the Bears during the Big 12 season, if not sooner.

Dunn averaged 19.6 points and 4.8 rebounds last season.

Baylor's Dunn reinstated to school

I think that it is important to remember that these are still alllegations , not facts. Yes, his girlfriend did get hurt and had to go to the hospital, but it is still entirely possible that it was indeed an accident, as they both claim. If the facts come out that he did do this and he is found guilty, I would then hope that Baylor not only suspends, but expells Dunn. Until then, he is innocent until proven guilty, and afforded his constitutional right of due process.

Baylor's Dunn reinstated to school

amazing ... baylor suspended (academically) a female student for 1 year in late 90s for posing playboy, and then suspended an entire fraternity for a period of 5 years for its members participating in the same event (posing clothed, with bikini clad coeds) ... the university vp for student life said at the time "We struggled with these sanctions, but believe they reflect our firmly held values - values that we hope to impart on our students."
i guess values change, or at least the imparting of "values" depends on how good your jump shot you have
