 COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -Missouri coach Mike Anderson suspended five players indefinitely Tuesday after a weekend brawl left his top scorer with a broken jaw.
In a statement from the university, Anderson declined to indicate the reason for the discipline, calling the infractions a violation of team rules. But the move comes as Columbia police confirmed that several teammates were with senior guard Stefhon Hannah when he was attacked outside a downtown nightclub early Sunday morning. The injury could cause Hannah to miss the rest of the season.
Suspended from Wednesday's home game against Nebraska are senior guard Jason Horton and forwards Marshall Brown, Darryl Butterfield and Leo Lyons. Butterfield and Brown are also seniors; Lyons is a junior.
Hannah, who has returned home to Chicago following surgery, also is suspended.
``I am very disappointed in the actions of these young men,'' Anderson said. ``We have defined team rules and when those rules aren't followed, our guys must be held accountable for their actions.''
Sgt. Ken Hammond didn't identify the players who accompanied Hannah but noted ``there were numerous other players there.''
