"Augustus will practice today, but will not play against James Madison on Saturday," said Heath in a statement released by the university.  "He has learned a valuable life lesson and I expect him to focus on teamwork and winning at USF."

"I'm excited to practice today and compete for USF. I let some personal issues get the best of me. I apologize to our team and to our fans," said Gilchrist, also in a statement, who will be available to play against Cleveland State on Dec. 22 in Ohio.
