Herman Lathers invited to seniors game

Tennessee senior Herman Lathers has one more college football game to play.

Lathers is invited to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Carson Calif., on Jan. 19.

The game, sponsored by the NFL Players Association, is for draft-eligible seniors and will be televised by ESPN2.

Lathers was UT's third-leading tackler in 2012 after missing 2011 due to a fractured ankle.

Women's Basketball: After posting a pair of double-doubles, Tennessee's Bashaara Graves was named SEC Freshman of the Week on Monday.

The 6-foot-2 forward scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in a 75-40 victory over Davidson last Friday. She followed up with 11 points and a career-high 14 rebounds in Sunday's 66-47 victory over Rutgers. She now is tied for the conference lead with six double-doubles for the season.

For the week, Graves shot 50 percent from the floor (9 for 18) and 90 percent (9 for 10) from the free throw line.

For the season, Graves has scored in double figures in 11 of 12 games.

Tennessee opens SEC play Thursday at South Carolina.

Stokelys Honored: UT will recognize the Stokely family's long-time support at men's and women's basketball games on Jan. 9-10.

The recognition for William B. Stokely III and his family coincides with the closing of Stokely Athletic Center, which served as homecourt from 1958-87.

Was hoping Lathers would petition for a Medical Redshirt. I guess that he was unable or decided his body had taken enough abuse. Good luck Herman you represented my university as best as you could and for that I am thankful.
