In an afternoon press release, the University of Missouri’s Athletic Department announced that suspended guard Ricky Clemons was reinstated. Clemons was accused of assaulting a 20-year old woman in his Columbia apartment last week. Clemons turned himself into police on Friday, but denies the charge. He was suspended from Saturday’s game against Oklahoma St. Athletic Director Mike Alden and head coach Quin Snyder both indicated that they would let the judicial system decide Clemons’ guilt or innocence. Clemons will have an arraignment hearing on January 29. In 2001 Clemons had a similar accusation made against him by a 19-year old woman. The charges were later dropped.
