Sunday 4/07/13 On HOT 97 Street Soldiers With Lisa Evers:

"COACHES ABUSING PLAYERS: Is the Rutgers case the exception or the rule?"

This Sunday April 7th at 9am, Street Soldiers with Lisa Evers is LIVE on HOT 97 and streaming live nationally on www.hot97.com on this topic...

"COACHES ABUSING PLAYERS: Is the Rutgers case the exception or the rule?"

IN THIS EPISODE OF HOT 97 STREET SOLDIERS WITH LISA EVERS, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT COLLEGE HOOPS PLAYERS BEING ABUSED BY THEIR COACHES.

MIKE RICE OF RUTGERS WAS FIRED FROM HIS AFTER A VIDEO OF HIM CURSING, PUSHING AND SHOVING, AND FIRING BASKETBALLS AT POINT BLANK RANGE AT HIS PLAYERS WENT VIRAL.

SOME PLAYERS SAY THIS IS TYPICAL BEHAVIOR, AND THAT IT'S SPORTS, NOT SUNDAY SCHOOL. BUT OTHERS SAY IT IS ABUSIVE AND DEGRADING TO PLAYERS, WHO OFTEN HAVE NO WAY TO COMPLAIN OR REMEDY THE SITUATION BECAUSE THEY ARE DEPENDENT ON THEIR SPORTS SCHOLARSHIPS TO GET A COLLEGE EDUCATION.

HOW FAR CAN COACHES GO TO MOTIVATE THEIR PLAYERS? WHEN DO THE ACTIONS CROSS THE LINE? WE'D LIKE TO HEAR WHAT YOU THINK.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR:

1) FORMER OR CURRENT RUTGERS BASKETBALL PLAYERS WHO HAVE PLAYED UNDER MIKE RICE....

2) FORMER BASKETBALL PLAYERS OR COACHES WHO CAN TALK ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES AND WHAT IS OR IS NOT ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR...

3) A SPORTS WRITER, COLUMNIST OR COMMENTATOR WHO CAN GIVE US THE BIG PICTURE....

4) A PERSON INVOLVED WITH SPORTS OR WHO FOLLOWS SPORTS AND HAS A STRONG OPINION....

We will be broadcasting LIVE and taking phone calls...
