Baylor’s Jones to miss five games if he stays

March 18, 2011


— Perry Jones will miss the first five games next season if he stays at Baylor after an NCAA reinstatement committee on Thursday upheld an earlier ruling that declared the standout freshman ineligible.

Jones is projected to be one of the top picks in the NBA Draft.

As part of Thursday’s ruling, Jones must also repay at least $700 in impermissible benefits. That included a trip to California last August to attend an NFL preseason game before he began classes at Baylor.
