University of Missouri President Elson Floyd, Athletic Director Mike Alden and others met with the NCAA in Indianapolis to discuss the investigation into the men’s basketball program yesterday. Originally hopes were set on having the investigation wrapped up by the end of November, but that won’t be the case. A release from the university state, “The preliminary fact-gathering phase of the review involving the MU men’s basketball program is continuing.” Some good news came from the meeting, according to Floyd. He told reporters that the allegations of academic fraud are no longer being investigated. Ricky Clemons’ former girlfriend, Jessica Bunge, alleged that Clemons had some class work done for him and that he received cash payments from someone on the coaching staff. Clemons was kicked off the team this summer after violating terms of probation. He pleaded guilty to falsely imprisoning Bunge last winter.
