COLUMBIA, MO (KCTV/AP) -

Missouri basketball player Terrence Phillips is no longer a member of the program, according to reports.

The team announced Phillips' indefinite suspension on last Friday after being investigated by university officials.

The University of Missouri-Columbia's Title IX office that investigates allegations of sexual discrimination and violence said in an email that it is investigating Phillips. Both the Kansas City Star and St. Louis Post-Dispatch obtained a copy of the email.

The newspapers reported that the Title IX email was sent last Friday to an alleged victim.

The junior from Orange County, California, had been a back-up point guard for the Tigers this season after starting most of the previous two years.
