WACO (AP) – Quincy Miller has decided to stay at Baylor to play his sophomore season.

Miller, one of the Big 12’s top freshmen last season, announced his decision Tuesday.

His announcement came a day after Perry Jones III said he was bypassing his final two seasons of eligibility with the Bears for early entry into the NBA draft after his sophomore season.

Jones last year skipped the chance to be Baylor’s first one-and-done player. Miller had considered doing that this time.

Miller averaged 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds while starting 35 of 37 games as Baylor advanced to the NCAA round of 16 for the second time in three seasons.
