ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Saint Louis University freshman Jordan Goodwin will miss the rest of the season after violating school policy in relation to its Title IX investigation of sexual misconduct involving several basketball players.

Jordan Goodwin requested that SLU issue the following statement to the media on his behalf.

"I take responsibility for a violation of University policy. I am going to take this short time to reflect and learn from this situation. I apologize to everyone who has been affected. I am sad to leave my team, but I look forward to returning to Team Blue in May."

It’s unclear how Goodwin violated policy.

The school will not comment other than to say the investigation has concluded and the cases are closed.

The point guard was arguably SLU's most important player this season, as he was the team leader in assists and rebounds, and was second in both scoring and minutes played.

The allegations go back to September of 2017, when three women reported they were sexually assaulted by four SLU athletes.

Three Billikens basketball players were suspended, and a fourth was expelled.
