COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ Missouri basketball player Ricky Clemons was sentenced Friday to two months in jail for beating up a woman and holding her against her will at his apartment.

Clemons pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of assault and false imprisonment on April 21.

Clemons, also sentenced to two years of unsupervised probation, was to report to the Boone County Jail on Monday.

Jessica Bunge said Clemons pushed her down, bloodied her nose and choked her the night of Jan. 16 after she refused to watch the movie ``Roots'' with him. Clemons was arrested the next day.

The guard was suspended from competing during the 2003-2004 season but will still have a year of eligibility if he returns.
