Missouri Tigers guard Michael Dixon was accused of rape on August 20, according to Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star. However, according to the police report, the case was closed on Nov. 16 with charges being dismissed due to lack of evidence.

Dixon was suspended from the team by head coach Frank Wraith in October for violating team rules. It is unknown at this time if the senior's suspension was regarding the accusation. Though cleared of legal wrongdoing, Dixon will await further disciplinary action from the university.

Dixon is a fourth-year senior out of Kansas City and has averaged double-digit points in each of the last two seasons. Dixon scored 22 points in Missouri's first round exit against Norfolk State in the NCAA Tournament last season. He has yet to set foot on the floor for the Tigers this season, but has been practicing and traveling with the team during his suspension.
