As if being a male cheerleader isn't humiliating enough...

Police in Columbia, Missouri, say two female basketball players at the University of Missouri broke a male cheerleader's nose and left him with a black eye following an incident early Friday morning.

According to the Columbia Tribune, the two players -- five-foot-eleven-inch Amanda Hanneman and six-foot-one-inch Jessra Johnson were out late Thursday celebrating their team's colossal victory (83-34) over Texas Pan-American on Thursday night.

The two later headed from a Columbia bar to an apartment complex where a police spokesman says a "dynamic disturbance" occurred around 2 a.m.

That's when the male cheerlearder -- a senior at MU -- complained about the noise and was allegedly attacked by Hanneman and Johnson.

The two players were arrested a short time later and have been suspended -- indefinitely -- from the basketball team.
