Cinmeon Bowers can return to open the 2015-16 season after Auburn’s internal investigation deemed no further punishment was necessary.AUBURN — Cinmeon Bowers canreturn to the court when Auburn opens the 2015-16 season after the school’s investigation concluded and deemed further punishment was not necessary, according to Tigers coach Bruce Pearl.After meeting with school officials Tuesday, more than 60 days after Bowers was suspended for the SEC Tournament semifinals for a “potential rules violation,” Pearl was informed Auburn’s starting center and leading returning scorer will face no additional penalty.While details of the “possible” violation have been unclear, Pearl maintained all along that holding Bowers out for Auburn’s game with then top-ranked and undefeated Kentucky on March 14, which the Tigers lost 91-67, was a precautionary measure and Auburn’s historic run would not be jeopardized.Bowers, who has not been available for interviews since the suspension, averaged 12.1 points and 9.6 rebounds, second in the SEC, while starting all 34 games after transferring to Auburn last season. He is projected to start at either center or power forward next season, which the Tigers will open on Nov. 13 against UAB.
