Perry Ellis’ basketball future remains uncertain. After getting only limited playing time for Dallas’ summer league team — he averaged 12.4 minutes in the five games — the forward was not picked up by the team.
The potential awkwardness of the situation is still difficult to avoid. Yes, Montell Cozart was voted as a team captain a year ago, but his presence at Big 12 media days will look out of place in a few months if he doesn’t, in fact, win the starting job.
Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said the some of league’s Board of Directors believe the Baylor sexual-assault scandal has “sullied” the conference. Baylor officials will meet with the Board on Tuesday in Dallas.
