St. Joe's suspends last season's top scorer Jones 3 games for unspecified violation wire reports

PHILADELPHIA -- Saint Joseph's has suspended guard Carl Jones for three games because of an unspecified violation of the university's community standards.

The Hawks announced the suspension before the start of Thursday's exhibition game against Wheeling Jesuit. Jones will also miss Monday's home opener against Yale and a game against Notre Dame at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

Jones led the Hawks in scoring last season, averaging 17 points a game. The Hawks were chosen the preseason favorite in the Atlantic 10.
