COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Missouri basketball team will enter exhibition play short-handed. Head coach Frank Haith announced the suspensions of senior guard Mike Dixon and freshman guard Dominique Bull for violations of team rules.
Haith did not disclose what team rules the pair had broken, saying the matter did not involve NCAA or legal issues. He didn't say how long the players will be suspended, either. He only confirmed the pair will not play in Monday's exhibition opener against Northwest Missouri State.

Dixon has not practiced with the team recently, but Bull has been participating. Dixon is expected to return to practice next week.
