COLUMBIA — 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, Michael James Martin was also arrested along with the players 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.
