At least four women reportedly filed complaints against Missouri Tigers basketball player Terrence Phillips.
Katy Bergen, Aaron Reiss and Alex Schiffer of the Kansas City Star reported the news Wednesday, noting the school opened a Title IX investigation against Phillips. The report said some of the women "made reports of harassment, physical abuse or the filming of a sexual encounter without consent."
One Missouri student had filed a complaint with Missouri's Title IX office by Friday—the day Phillips was suspended from the team—and two said they did so after finding out he was under investigation, per the Kansas City Star.
"There are two sides to every story," Phillips said, per the Kansas City Star. "Some people really want to say 'Me too' because apparently it's the cool thing to do. I have a side. I am cooperating with Mizzou like I was instructed. Unfortunately I can't say a lot, but at the end of the investigation, I intend to be cleared from the accusations. People who know me know this isn't me."
Phillips has served as a backup point guard for Missouri for the majority of the 2017-18 campaign, but he was largely a starter in each of the last two seasons.
