Baylor freshman Quincy Miller is back on the court and is expected to play for the Bears in their upcoming trip to Canada.

``He’s about 80 to 85 percent,” Baylor coach Scott Drew said. ``And he looks pretty good.”

Drew said the 6-foot-9 Miller, who is regarded as one of the top freshmen in the nation and is coming off a torn ACL suffered back in December, has been involved in all aspects of practice thus far.

He said Miller is able to do everything, but that the trainer limits him at certain points when he appears fatigued.

Baylor is allowed 10 practices prior to the Bears trip to Toronto from Aug. 11-16.

``Quincy’s improved his shot,” Drew said. ``That’s really all he could do while he was out and rehabbing.”

Drew will likely employ plenty of zone defense with the long frontline of 6-foot-11 Perry Jones, 6-foot-10 Anthony Jones and Miller. He also has 6-foot-11 J’Mison Morgan, 6-foot-9 Cory Jefferson and 6-foot-7 Quincy Acy.

Drew admits the key will likely be point guard play – where he has multiple options.

There’s holdover A.J. Walton, junior college transfer Pierre Jackson, Boston College transfer Brady Heslip, Baylor transfer Gary Franklin and athletic freshman Deuce Bello.

``We have a lot of guys,” Drew said. ``We’ll see what happens.”

If Perry Jones can blossum into what he is expected to, this team could be very dangerous come March.  A leader will have to emerge, and I don't think that is Jones, but if one does, and everyone buys in to Team First, this team could be deadly!

Big expectations down at Baylor this year.  Two Lottery picks and 2 more 2nd round draft picks on Baylor's Roster this year.  As Drew said in the article it will all come down to when and if someone steps up at point guard to lead this incredible talent Drew has put together in the back court.  They should be fun to watch and with KU not having their premier talent this is the year to make a run at the Big 12/10 title assuming no major injuries.
