As Texas Tech Red Raider Basketball head coach Billy Gillispie remains hospitalized at Lubbock’s University Medical Center, CBS Sports reports further details concerning the allegations of mistreatment against his players.

The report, by Jeff Goodman, focuses on the original allegations made in ESPN’s report last week: that Gillispie willfully violated NCAA rules concerning the lengths and amounts his team would practice.

Former players have come out and told CBSSports.com that Gillispie broke NCAA rules by not adhering to practice limits. He once went eight hours in a single day. NCAA rules stipulate you can’t practice more than four hours per day or 20 hours per week.

“We practiced a lot more than 20 hours a week,” former guard Kevin Wagner told CBSSports.com.

As of Tuesday evening, a statement made by Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt last Friday is the only statement officially released concerning Gillispie:

“We are aware and are looking into concerns within the leadership of our men’s basketball program. Student-athlete well-being is our top priority and a matter that we take extremely seriously at Texas Tech. Texas Tech is devoting its full resources to look into this matter.”

Goodman’s CBS Sports report also states that Gillispie’s behavior has caused numerous assistant coaches and support personnel to leave the Red Raider Basketball program.

Billy Gillispie has coached one season with the Red Raiders.
