Wake Forest head coach Danny Manning has reinstated Madison Jones from his offseason suspension on Wednesday. If you recall, Jones, a 6’1″, junior guard and senior to be, was suspended this offseason for all basketball-related activities.
The school and Manning put out a statement, confirming the news.
“I have made the decision to reinstate Madison from his suspension from all basketball-related activities after several weeks away from the program,” said Manning. “I have evaluated his progress over the past several weeks and feel that he has made great strides and better decisions to earn his way back. We anticipate that he continues down this path for his senior year.”
Jones, who made six starts for the Demon Deacons, is coming off a season in which he averaged 4.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists (second on the team) in 21 minutes per game. He also shot .427 percent from the field and just .588 from the free-throw line.
Wake Forest is coming off a season that saw them finish 13-19 overall (5-13 in the ACC). Manning’s squad is making some progress, though, and the team does return all five starters, including Codi Miller-McIntyre (14.5 points and 4.3 assists per game) and Devin Thomas (12 points and 8.8 rebounds per game), heading into the 2015-16 season.
