Source: Ratliff at practice

A source close to the Indiana basketball team said Wednesday night that A.J. Ratliff practiced with the Hoosiers Wednesday afternoon.

There were reports on Internet message boards Tuesday and Wednesday saying Ratliff had skipped practices on both days. Ratliff’s aunt Stephanie Gilbert, who is a legal guardian for Ratliff, and his high school coach Doug Mitchell both told the H-T Wednesday that they didn’t know anything about Ratliff missing any practices.
