Forward Cameron Biedscheid no longer part of Missouri hoops team

Wednesday October 1st, 2014

Missouri forward Cameron Biedscheid will no longer be a member of the basketball team "as he attends to personal matters," coach Kim Anderson said in a statement on Tuesday.

Biedscheid transferred from Notre Dame to Missouri after averaging 6.2 points and 1.4 rebounds during his freshman season with the Irish. Biedscheid was redshirting his sophomore season before deciding to transfer.

Cameron will no longer be a member of our basketball program as he attends to personal matters,” Anderson said in a news release. “We wish him and his family all the best and hope everyone will respect their privacy during this period of time.”

Missouri said it would not comment further on Biedscheid's departure.

Biedscheid was a heralded recruit coming out of Cardinal Ritter (Mo.) College Prep, where he averaged 31.7 points and 9.6 rebounds as a senior. The recruiting website ranked Biedscheid the No. 8 small forward and No. 28 player in the class of 2012. 

After going 29-6 and failing to qualify for the NCAA Tournament last season, Missouri hired Kim Anderson as head coach to replace Frank Haith, who left for Tulsa.
