Baylor Bears

Baylor’s Taurean Prince selected 12th overall by Jazz (to Hawks)

Wow. That came as a complete shocker.

The Utah Jazz was selected 12th overall by the Utah Jazz. Prince is expected to be the final piece in the proposed trade between the Jazz, Hawks and Pacers that sends Prince to Atlanta, Jeff Teague to Indiana, and George Hill to Utah.

Prince is coming off a first-team Big 12 honor where he averaged 15.9 PPG, 6.1 RPG, while shooting 43.2% from the floor.

In 2015, his junior year, Prince was named the Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year.

Of course, Prince’s tenure will be remember as one of NCAA Tournament letdown. In Prince’s sophomore year the Bears made the Elite Eight. But, his junior season ended with an upset in the first round against Georgia State. And then once again this past March, the Bears were stunned in the first round by Yale.
