Civil Lawsuit Filed Against Texas Tech Basketball’s Pop Isaacs


Texas Tech basketball player Pop Isaacs has been accused in a civil lawsuit of sexually assaulting a minor during his team’s trip to the Bahamas in November.

The lawsuit, a copy of which was obtained by ESPN, was filed in Lubbock County (Texas) District Court by the parents of the girl who says she was sexually assaulted.

The girl was 17 years old at the time of the alleged incident. The age of consent in the Bahamas is 16, but the lawsuit says she was intoxicated at the time and she could not give consent. She is asking for one million dollars in damages.

The Red Raiders were playing in Battle 4 Atlantis on Paradise Island at the time.

The lawsuit alleges that a Texas Tech booster purchased alcoholic beverages for Isaacs and a teammate. They were in a room with two girls, 17 and 16 years old. The lawsuit says Isaacs and the 17-year-old went to another room, where she was sexually assaulted after she “tried to fight him.”

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs contacted Texas Tech coach Grant McCasland on December 14. McCasland reported the situation to athletic director Kirby Hocutt and other university officials, he says.

Texas Tech did not immediately respond to ESPN’s request for comment.

Isaacs has played in all 13 games this season for Texas Tech, averaging 15.8 points and 3.4 assists.

Texas Tech (11-2) is scheduled to play at Texas on Saturday.
