KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (KNS) -- Tennessee's athletic department reported 10 secondary violations of NCAA bylaws since August, according to information posted on the school's website.

Three of the violations were in men's basketball, including a violation reported in September related to an open practice before UT's football game against Florida that was attended by basketball prospect Robert Hubbs. UT said visiting prospects on official visits were "permitted to shoot on the court while the coaches were present."

Coaches were admonished and the university said it provided rules education for coaches and UT staff members who were "involved in the decision to open the concourse of Thompson-Boling Arena."
