Missouri announced tonight that Cameron Biedscheid would no longer be a part of the Missouri basketball program, citing personal matters as the reason for his dismissal.
In a statement released by the team earlier today head coach Kim Anderson said, “Cameron will no longer be a member of our basketball program as he attends to personal matters. We wish him and his family all the best and hope everyone will respect their privacy during this period of time.”
Biedscheid, who transferred from Notre Dame, never saw action in his time at Missouri, as he was ineligible to play until December of this year. He was expected to help Missouri off the bench as a long-range shooter in the wake of Jabari Brown’s jump to the NBA.
The 6’7” guard out of Cardinal Ritter high school in St. Louis, Mo. averaged just 6.2 points and 1.4 rebounds in 34 games his freshman season at Notre Dame.
Biedscheid is the third member of the Missouri basketball program to leave since Anderson took over the head coaching duties. Shane Rector elected to transfer from the team due his subsequent lack of playing time. Anderson also dismissed Torren Jones from the team due to an undisclosed team violation.
Additionally the program indefinitely suspended freshman Jakeenan Gant and D’Angelo Allen after they were arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault.
