His arrest for an unpaid speeding ticket will put J.T. Tiller on the sidelines for Missouri’s Saturday home game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
Tiller was arrested early Thursday morning by the Boone County Sheriff’s Department and paid a $185 fine.
On Thursday afternoon, MU basketball coach Mike Anderson said Tiller would serve a one-game suspension but would return next week for Missouri’s game against Illinois in St. Louis.
“J.T., we talk about him being the face of our program,” Anderson said. “With everything he's done, everything that you ask of a student-athlete, it just shows you if it can happen to J.T., it can happen to anyone.
Never miss a local story.
“With that being said, we'll deal with it in house.
"No one feels worse than J.T. Tiller, I'm going to tell you that."
