Jones shines as Baylor crushes Prairie View A&M

Waco, TX (Sports Network) - Perry Jones III scored 27 points in his first game off a five-game suspension and pulled down six rebounds as the seventh-ranked Baylor Bears routed the Prairie View A&M Panthers, 90-54.

Quincy Acy chipped in with 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Bears (6-0), who have won all six of their games at home.

Montreal Scott netted 14 points and Jules Montgomery scored 13 points and posted 11 rebounds for the Panthers (2-6), who have lost six straight games.

Prairie View A&M jumped off to a quick 11-2 lead after Scott hit three treys in the opening four minutes of the game, but Baylor responded with a 27-5 run for a 29-16 lead with seven minutes to go until the break.

"We came out strong and we've got to keep that momentum," Prairie View A&M Byron Rimm III said. "It's a 40-minute game."

Jones scored 16 points on 7-of-8 shooting as the Bears took a 46-24 advantage after the opening 20 minutes.

"As far as tonight goes, it was great having Perry Jones III back," Baylor head coach Scott Drew said. "I think we know on the court what he provides a team, but off the court he is such a great teammate. Everyone likes him so much and I think everybody was really happy to see him get out there and play again."

The Bears continued the onslaught in the second half, outscoring the Panthers, 44-30.

Baylor shot 52 percent from the field and made 30-of-37 attempts from the line.

Prairie View A&M shot just 33 percent from the field, but connected on 9-of-19 attempts from beyond the arc.
