Perry Jones announced Monday that he will return for his sophomore season at Baylor.
Jones averaged 13.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game for the Bears before the NCAA suspended him prior to the Big 12 tournament for accepting impermissible benefits from his former summer coach. Jones will also have to miss the first five games of next season. He was a projected lottery pick had he entered June's NBA Draft.
Baylor was 18-13 overall this season, 7-9 in the Big 12.
