Baylor's Perry Jones III Makes The Cut On The Naismith Award's Midseason 30 Watch List

Baylor Bears forward Perry Jones III has been named to the Naismith Midseason 30 Watch List for Player of the Year on Wednesday.

The Atlanta Tipoff Club announced on Wednesday that Baylor Bears sophomore forward Perry Jones III has made the cut on the "Midseason 30" Watch List for the Naismith Men’s Basketball Player of the Year Award presented by AT&T.

Jones has helped lead the Bears to a 25-5 record this season as the center is averaging 13.2 points/game and 7.2 rebounds/game for Scott Drew's ball club. The Bears have just two games remaining in their regular season, and with every win they can gain the better seed they can secure in the NCAA tournament this March. After going through a 5-5 stretch midway through the conference schedule, the Bears have won 3 straight to right the ship.

The Naismith Trophy will be awarded at the 2012 NCAA Men’s Final Four in New Orleans in April.
