COLUMBIA — The Missouri women’s basketball team may have hit a speed bump in its efforts to turnaround a struggling program.
The Tigers leading scorers Amanda Hanneman and Jessra Johnson have been “suspended indefinitely due to a violation of team policy," according to Kate Lakin, assistant director of media relations for the Missouri women's basketball team.
According to a report on the Web site of television station KOMU/Channel 8 Hanneman and Johnson were questioned by Columbia police about a fight early Friday morning.
This season, Johnson has scored 14.1 points a game and Hanneman
averages 13.3. Missouri beat Texas-Pan American 83-34 on Thursday night to
improve to 6-2.
The Tigers play Murray State at 1 p.m. Sunday at Mizzou Arena.
