Perry Jones III rediscovered his shooting touch with 18 points and No. 9 Baylor rebounded from consecutive losses with a 79-64 victory over Iowa State on Monday night.
Jones already had 10 points by halftime, one more than he had combined last week when Baylor (22-4, 9-4 Big 12) lost consecutive games to No. 4 Kansas and No. 3 Missouri for the second time in four weeks. The Bears are undefeated against the rest of the Big 12 and everybody else they have played.
Freshman Quincy Miller added 16 points for the Bears, while Anthony Jones had 12 points and Quincy Acy 11.
Melvin Ejim had 17 points for Iowa State (18-8, 8-5), which had won four of its previous five games to tie Baylor for third in the league behind Kansas and Missouri.
Jones, the preseason Big 12 player of the year, was 8 of 13 after going a combined 3-for-20 last week.
