COLUMBIA - The University of Missouri's Title IX office has opened an investigation on junior Mizzou basketball player, Terrence Phillips.
Phillips was suspended indefinitely from the Mizzou Men's Basketball team on Friday, Jan. 26 for a "violation of team policy."
Title IX offices focus on investigating sexual harassment, violence and discrimination.
MU released a statement Sunday evening recognizing the allegations, but said it could not confirm or deny any actions made by the Title IX office.
"We want to reiterate that the safety of our students, faculty and staff is paramount," the statement said. "The university takes alleged violations of Title IX very seriously and any allegations are investigated thoroughly and fairly."
The team released an official statement Friday reiterating Phillips' future with the team.
"Phillips' future status with the program will be determined in coordination with campus and department leadership," the team's statement said.
