He was suspended last Friday after being charged with second degree domestic assault, and Mizzou was blitzed 76-56 by Oklahoma State. Clemons has denied the alleged altercation took place. He was reinstated on Monday.

The Huskies scored nine points in the first half against UMass on Dec. 10 before rallying to win, seven points in the first 10:14 in a Jan. 7 loss to Oklahoma and four points in the first 9:42 of last Saturday's defeat at North Carolina.
