During the football season, Baylor's campus and the rest of the nation was entranced by top NFL prospect Robert Griffin III, but once basketball fever hit, a different "the third" took over. Already a top NBA prospect after last year's impressive season, Jones III cemented his name in lottery team's scouting reports by surprisingly returning to college for another big season. And unlike last year's postseason, when he was suspended for receiving benefits, Jones III dominated in the Big 12 tournament and is ready to take on the South division of the bracket. He has shot 57%, put in 65 points, and swiped 29 boards over the Bears' past three games. He stayed in school for the purpose of making the NCAA tournament. Now that he's here, other teams better watch out.
