NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings says he has an effective way to get his players' attention when he's frustrated without doing something stupid, like putting his hands on them.
He kicks a basketball as hard and high as he can inside Memorial Gym to make his point - without touching anyone.
Stallings was one of a trio of coaches who took part Wednesday in a panel discussion on Integrity in Sports at Belmont University, and Rice was a hot topic.
Seeing only snippets of the video showing Mike Rice shoving players at Rutgers and throwing basketballs at them left Stallings embarrassed for the coaching profession.
Butler coach Brad Stevens says he had never seen a practice like that, and Belmont coach Rick Byrd believes personal attacks on players just aren't necessary.
