Gabe Pruitt was forced to walk up and down steps in the Galen Center stands during practice Tuesday because he missed two tutoring sessions. Pruitt was academically ineligible for the first 11 games of this season. Coach Tim Floyd said that would be the extent of the punishment, and Pruitt would be allowed back in practice Wednesday.
“I had a problem in the past earlier so I should be the last one to do that,” said Pruitt, who added that he overslept. “I take responsibility for it happening.”
