Report: Tolbert doesn’t want Gillespie


Texas Tech leading scorer Jordan Tolbert told’s Andy Katz on Monday he doesn’t want to play for Billy Gillispie if the coach returns from an extended medical leave.  Gillispie is on indefinite sick leave while his bosses investigate allegations that he mistreated his players during practices.

Tolbert was one of the returning players who met with Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt two weeks ago after the compliance office queried the players about excessive practice time.  As a freshman last season, Tolbert led Texas Tech in scoring at 11.5 points per game, and tied for the team lead at 5.7 a night.
