COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri freshmen basketball players Jakeenan Gant and D'Angelo Allen have been suspended after getting arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor third-degree assault.
Coach Kim Anderson said in a statement that the players would not participate in team activities while the school gathers information.
According to published reports, the players and a third man were arrested after reports of an assault early Sunday.
The 6-foot-8 Gant was Mr. Basketball in Georgia his senior season and was among 21 players selected to participate in USA Basketball's U18 National Team training camp.
The 6-foot-7 Allen, of Dallas, signed with Missouri soon after Anderson was hired in April.
