    Baylor announced on Friday that it has indefinitely suspended junior forward Mario Kegler and that he will pursue a professional career and forego his remaining collegiate eligibility.

    The 6-foot-8 Kegler transferred to Baylor from Mississippi State and was then suspended for the first six games of the 2018-19 season due to a violation of team rules.

    He averaged 10.5 points and 5.8 rebounds last season in 28 starts.

    Kegler went for 23 points against West Virginia and had 24 against Texas to help the Bears notch back-to-back wins late last season, and then went for 13 points and 4 rebounds when Baylor beat Syracuse in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

    Baylor opens the season Nov. 5 at home against Central Arkansas.
