Missouri announced Tuesday night that Cam Biedscheid would no longer be part of the men’s basketball program.

Biedscheid, a St. Louis native who transferred from Notre Dame in January, never played in a game for the Tigers.

He was expected to be eligible at semester and contribute as a wing scorer.

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

Biedscheid, a 6-foot-7 small forward from Cardinal Ritter in St. Louis, averaged 31.7 points and 9.6 rebounds as a high school senior.

With the Fighting Irish, Biedscheid averaged 6.2 points and 1.4 rebounds as a freshman in 2012-13.

Missouri said it would have no further comment about Biedscheid’s leaving the program.

He is the third player to leave since Anderson took over in April.

Shooting guard Shane Rector transferred in May, and Anderson dismissed forward Torren Jones in August.

Two freshmen, forwards D’Angelo Allen and Jakeenan Gant, were suspended from team activities after being arrested Sept. 14 on suspicion of assault.
