KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri basketball player Terrence Phillips has been suspended from the team and is being investigated by university officials.

The University of Missouri-Columbia's Title IX office that investigates allegations of sexual discrimination and violence said in an email that it is investigating Phillips. Both the Kansas City Star and St. Louis Post-Dispatch obtained a copy of the email.

The newspapers reported that the Title IX email was sent Friday to an alleged victim.

The team announced Phillips' indefinite suspension on Friday. The junior from Orange County, California, had been a back-up point guard for the Tigers this season after starting most of the previous two years.
