Michael Dixon Jr., a senior guard for Mizzou, was cleared of criminal charges by prosecutors in the Boone County Prosecuting Attorney's office Nov. 16 after allegations of a sexual assault on Aug. 20 were made against him.
"Based on [the police] review ... it was determined that the evidence was not sufficient to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury," prosecutor Tracey Gonzalez said.
Kim English, Dixon's teammate, took to Twitter following Missouri's 81-64 loss to Louisville Friday night, saying Dixon should be allowed to return to game action. (He is still practicing and traveling with the team.)
The tweet was met with a response by a woman identifying herself as Dixon's alleged victim, reaffirming her allegation and supporting a faculty committee's decision not to reinstate Dixon yet, The Kansas City Star reported Wednesday.
Dixon himself responded on Twitter: "Our team fought hard. I wish I could b out there helping them. I'VE DONE NOTHING WRONG!"
Dixon, who also plays baseball for the Tigers, has been suspended from both sports since the allegations surfaced.
