Baylor star LaceDarius Dunn showed little sign of rust coming off a three-game suspension due to his arrest last month on an aggravated assault charge.
Dunn was 7-for-11 from beyond the arc, scoring 24 points against Lipscomb. He appeared to be all smiles in his return to the court. To put his shooting performance in perspective, the Bears had combined for seven total 3-pointers in two previous games.
Baylor coach Scott Drew told The Star-Telegram he appreciated the cheers the home crowd gave Dunn.
"I have no voice because I've been sick with a cold, but I could have been screaming for Lace's 3's, too," Drew said. "First I want to thank the crowd for the great ovation they gave Lace.
"And then the second thing I thought people forgot how he can score, and you realized and remembered very quickly in that second half. That's why he's an All-American."
Dunn's girlfriend -- also the mother of his 3-year old son -- disputes police accounts of what happened last month, saying Dunn never hit her or broke her jaw. She also has asked that the charges against him be dropped
When asked if he was willing to address any of the legal issues he's still facing, Dunn said: "I just want to thank my fans, thank my family and everybody for their support."
