Jessica Bunge is not through talking about Ricky Clemons.

Bunge, a former Missouri student, agreed to meet with NCAA officials to discuss her statement that Clemons, her former boyfriend, received money while a member of the MU basketball team.

According to James Bunge, Bunge’s father, the meeting will be in Chicago, where Bunge lives and attends school. James Bunge was not sure of the meeting date but said it will likely happen in the next week.

Clemons is serving a 60-day jail sentence after pleading guilty to misdemeanor assault and false imprisonment for choking Bunge and not allowing her to leave his apartment in January.

James Bunge said he does not know what questions the NCAA will ask his daughter.

Bunge alleged in depositions during the investigation of the assault that Clemons received money and clothing from the basketball coaching staff. Last week, coach Quin Snyder admitted giving Clemons a pair of pants, a pair of shoes and a pair of flip-flops.

James Bunge added that it was doubtful any new information would come from the meeting.

“There’s probably not that much more to be said, but you just can’t go by hearsay,” he said.

According to James Bunge, he and his daughter are tired of the situation.

“You want to forget and move on,” he said.
