Arizona's women's basketball team is 4-7 heading into tonight's Pac-12 Conference opener at Washington. It's been a rough season to this point for the Wildcats, and it sounds like it's going to get even rougher.

Deadspin is reporting on a lawsuit filed in Texas that alleges current UA assistant Sean LeBeauf, who is in his first season with the team, sexually harrassed a player at his previous job at Paris (Tex.) Junior College.

The suit alleges, among other things, that LeBeauf threatened to revoke the player's scholarship if she turned down his advances, accused of having a sexual relationship with a student and sent regular suggestive texts like below:

Yup, he sent a dick pic.

An email sent to UA sports media relations director Jeremy Sharpe was not immediately returned.
