ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Saint Louis University Basketball star Jordan Goodwin has released a statement regarding his previously announced 2-month suspension from the program.

Goodwin, a Belleville native, was under a Title IX investigation that found Goodwin innocent but the university found him guilty of violating school policy, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Goodwin issued the following statement Tuesday morning after word of his suspension was announced:

I take responsibility for a violation of university policy. I am going to take this short time to reflect and learn from this situation. I apologize to everyone who has been affected. I am sad to leave my team, but I look forward to returning to Team Blue in May.

Goodwin was one of four basketball players that were under investigation after being accused of sexual assault back in the fall of 2017.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch also reports that last week, Ty Graves announced he would not return to the program, Adonys Henriquez has not practiced with the team in two weeks, and Jermaine Bishop, has continued to practice with the team.
