KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee forward Dominic Woodson didn't dress for a 65-64 victory over Kansas State on Saturday after being excused from team activities this week to focus on academic obligations.
The school issued a statement before the game saying Woodson wouldn't play against Kansas State because of the missed practice time.
''He really needed some catch-up time,'' Tennessee coach Donnie Tyndall said after the game. ''We'll have more of an update on him as we get into final exams.''
Woodson, a 6-foot-10 sophomore, has averaged 3.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 12.0 minutes in his first season with Tennessee since transferring from Memphis.
He averaged 2.5 points and 1.9 rebounds for the Tigers last season.
