BREAKING: Baylor’s Perry Jones III Ruled Ineligible For Tonight’s Game Against Oklahoma

Perry Jones III, the Baylor Bears' All Freshman sensation, has been ruled ineligible for tonight's Big 12 Tournament game against the Oklahoma Sooners.

Question about whether Jones and his family received improper benefits surfaced and Jones has been suspended by the NCAA.

Jones immediately appealed and there is no word yet whether this will affect any future Big 12 Tournament or other potential post season tournament games.

On the season the Duncanville, Texas native is averaging 13.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.  Both stats rank him second on the Bears.

Earlier this week Jones was selected to the Big 12 All Freshman team as a unanimous selection. He is projected to be one of the first players taken in the 2011 NBA Draft, if he were to forgo his remaining three years of college eligibility.

Stay tuned as we will update the site with information as it becomes public.
