Kansas basketball player Arterio Morris finds himself in a precarious situation as he faces a suspension from the team, confirmed by a school spokesperson on Friday. This decision comes on the heels of Morris recently pleading no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge on Thursday in Denton County, Texas. The charge stemmed from an alleged altercation with an ex-girlfriend that occurred in June 2022.
In a troubling twist, The Kansas City Star reported that Morris’s suspension might be linked to a rape allegation that was reported to the University of Kansas Police Department. The alleged incident was said to have taken place in late August within McCarthy Hall, a housing unit located near Allen Fieldhouse, where KU men’s basketball players and other students reside.
While the spokesperson did confirm Morris’s suspension, they did not provide any official confirmation regarding its connection to the sexual assault report. Furthermore, the spokesperson refrained from offering any additional comments on the matter.
This development has left the Kansas basketball community and fans concerned and eager for further details. Arterio Morris’s future with the team remains uncertain as the situation unfolds, and investigations continue into the allegations surrounding him.
