Missouri announces suspension of two players for ‘violation of team policy’

Kim Anderson’s first season as head coach at his alma mater hasn’t been a smooth one, and prior to Missouri’s game against Texas A&M Saturday the school announced that freshman guards Montaque Gill-Caesar and Namon Wright have been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team policy according to Steve Walentik of the Columbia Daily Tribune.

Those two join classmate Tramaine Isabell as players who are currently being withheld from competition by Anderson.

Gill-Caesar, who played for Missouri assistant Rob Fulford at Huntington Prep, is third on the team in scoring with an average of 9.6 points per game, and Wright is averaging 5.5 points per contest for the 7-15 Tigers (1-8 SEC). Both players have made 13 starts this season.

How tough has this season been for Missouri? With today’s suspensions just four scholarship players have not needed to be disciplined by Anderson: guard Keith Shamburger and forwards Keanau Post, Ryan Rosburg and Johnathan Willliams III.
