Since two MU women's basketball players were arrested Dec. 11 on suspicion of third-degree assault, they were suspended from the team, then reinstated after charges were dropped.
The team's two leading scorers, Amanda Hanneman and Jessra Johnson, were accused of assaulting a MU cheerleader and leaving him with a swollen nose and a cut on his eye. Hanneman and Johnson said they were trying to stop a fight involving a friend and cheerleader Justin Short.
Most recently, senior guard J.T. Tiller was suspended for one game after being arrested on a warrant for an unpaid speeding ticket.
Last year, five men's basketball players were suspended after they got into a fight outside of what was then Athena Night Club. Guard Stefhon Hannah, who was scheduled to miss four to six weeks of games, was dismissed from the team because of academic problems.
Coach Mike Anderson created a "no tolerance" policy after forward DeMarre Carroll was shot outside Club Tropicana on July 5, 2007.
Do these arrests reflect badly on the university? Should Tiller's arrest be treated as harshly as the alleged assaults?
