Bears report: Notes, quotes

--For the record, Baylor coach Scott Drew praised F Perry Jones and his family after the NCAA declared the freshman ineligible just hours prior to the Bears' first-round game in the Big 12 Tournament, which they lost to Oklahoma. "The Jones family are unbelievable people," Drew said. Sources familiar to the situation told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that three loans from an AAU coach had been repaid after the money was used to pay rent.

--With the Big 12 reduced to 10 teams beginning with the 2011-12 season, the records of the conference tournament over the first 15 years reflect a different era. Baylor went 9-14 all-time in the tournament and 5-7 under coach Scott Drew.

18-13, 7-9, tied for seventh in the Big 12.

2010-11 SEASON RECAP: Baylor underachieved throughout the season. After feasting on a light nonconference schedule, which included back-to-back losses to Washington State and Florida State, the Bears never enjoyed much of a run in the Big 12. It opened with back-to-back wins against Texas Tech and Oklahoma, but the only other time they enjoyed any kind of streak was two-game string again, against Texas Tech and Nebraska. The NCAA ruling declaring Jones ineligible essentially brought the disappointment in full view and the season officially crashed with the first-round loss to Oklahoma in the Big 12 Tournament. G LaceDarius Dunn became the conference's all-time leading scorer, though his record also accentuated Baylor's difficulty getting a seemingly talented frontcourt to play to its full potential.

"(Perry Jones) was a brother to me. It doesn't just affect him, his family, it affects the whole 13 guys on the bench, starting with the head coach going on down. That doesn't give us no reason to go out there (against Oklahoma) and lay it on the line. But Perry is like a brother. Wouldn't trade him for nothing in the world and wish him the best in the world." -- Baylor G LaceDarius Dunn, on his suspended teammate.
