Senior guard to leave Missouri

The SportsXchange

Suspended Missouri senior guard Michael Dixon will transfer, the school announced.

Dixon hasn't seen action this season for the No. 16 Tigers.

The suspension was described by the school as a violation of team rules. Dixon twice was accused of sexual assault while at Missouri but never charged.

A police report was filed in August by a female student accusing Dixon of sexual assault, but prosecutors decided against filing charges on Nov. 16.

"It's been a challenging few months, and while I appreciate the support of many in the Mizzou community, including my coaches and teammates, it's in the best interest of me, my family and the University of Missouri for me to finish my career elsewhere," Dixon said in the statement.

Dixon did not specifically address the allegations, but the Columbia Missourian reported Thursday that Dixon sent a friend text messages that said, "I have never harmed anyone."
