Missouri suspended freshmen Jakeenan Gant and D’Angelo Allen following their arrests over the weekend on suspicion of third-degree assault for allegedly jumping three men near campus.

Missouri coach Kim Anderson suspended both players from all team activities.

“We have high standards for the conduct of our student-athletes and expect much more from them as members of our program,” Anderson said Tuesday night.

Allen and Gant were arrested after officers responded at 1:34 a.m. Sunday in the area on the edge of Missouri’s campus. According to a police report obtained by the Columbia Daily Tribune, three men were “jumped” by three to four men on a city street.

Gant, a 6-foot-8 forward from Springfield, Ga., was the Tigers’ top recruit when he signed last November. Allen is a 6-7 forward from Dallas.
