Perry Jones: In a massive shocker, the highly-skilled 6-foot-11 Baylor freshman – who was suspended for the Big 12 tournament by the NCAA – is not going to enter the NBA draft and will stay in school. Jones, thought to be a lottery lock who probably would have gone in the Top 5, will have to sit out the first five games of next season. Jones didn’t put up big numbers in his freshman year (13.9 points, 7.2 rebounds), as he often deferred to seniors, but should be a monster next year. He’ll even have a wingman in Top 10 recruit Quincy Miller, who said no to Duke. We’ll have to put Baylor in our second crack at the super duper early preseason rankings. This year’s NBA draft just got considerably weaker, and runs the risk of being awful if Harrison Barnes doesn’t enter.
So yeah, the No. 1 team in the NCAA tournament made the bad kind of history Friday night as Virginia lost to University of Maryland, (…)
