Missouri Tigers Leo Lyons is the team’s second leading scorer and rebounder. He is also the team leader career suspensions. First it was over academic issues. Last January his suspension came from his involvement in a night club incident.

Lyons grabbed suspension number three. It wasn’t exactly for anything major. If it were not for his previous problems, it probably would not have led to a suspension. Lyons was arrested after being pulled over for a traffic violation. Not for that incident, but because he failed to pay the fine for a previous traffic violation in 2006.

Coach Mike Anderson suspended Lyons indefinitely for the arrest. Coach Anderson explained that it was about Lyons failing to be responsible. A running theme for most of Lyons’ suspensions. He does not do anything particularly bad. He just behaves irresponsibly.

The reality is that the indefinite suspension of Lyons will probably be for just Wednesday game against Colorado. Lyons will pay the fines and then he will most likely be reinstated for Saturday’s game with Iowa State.
