WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Madison Jones’ basketball career at Wake Forest will be on hold until Coach Danny Manning decides otherwise, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

Manning said Tuesday afternoon that Jones is suspended from all basketball-related activities for poor decisions. Manning declined to specify what rules were broken.

“He’s an upperclassman and he needs to make better decisions,” Manning said Tuesday.

Jones, a 6-1 guard from Raleigh, played in all 32 games this past season as a junior, starting six. He averaged 4.7 points over 21 minutes a game while shooting 42.7 percent from the floor and 59.3 percent from the free-throw line.

Jones started the first three games against UNC Asheville, Tulane and Arkansas before freshman Mitchell Wilbekin cracked the starting lineup. Jones also started against Florida, Bucknell and Richmond when Wilbekin was suspended by the NCAA for an unspecified violation. In those six games, Jones averaged 4.2 rebounds, 3 assists and 3.2 turnovers over 26.8 minutes a game.
