Final regular-season home game for 3 Vols

Cameron Tatum

Position: Wing.

Career marks: Scored his career-high of 22 points against Gonzaga his freshman season, scoring 14 consecutive points in that game; Equaled careers highs with 10 rebounds against Pittsburgh and six assists at South Carolina this season.

Resume: One of only two players to start every game this season for the Vols, Tatum has become instrumental in the flow of the motion offense and hit key 3-pointer to give UT its first lead of game in overtime period in pivotal win at LSU on Wednesday.

Cuonzo Martin says: "Cam has done a great job staying confident and persevering through some tough games, fighting through self-doubts. He has stayed focused, and stayed the course, and we're now starting to see the results of his hard work."

Renaldo Woolridge

Position: Center-wing.

Career marks: Matched career high with 17 points at Kentucky this season, knocking down five consecutive 3-pointers, and matched career high with eight rebounds against UNC Greensboro this season.

Resume: Woolridge sparked UT's historic win over then-No. 1 and unbeaten Kansas his sophomore year, scoring 14 (making four of five 3-pointers) and pulling down eight rebounds. Most versatile player in the program, Woolridge has played every position at UT except point guard, which he played in high school.

Cuonzo Martin says: "Renaldo has performed well in some big games and he knows what it's about. He's a good person who's wonderful to be around. He has a passion for life and music and also playing basketball. He'll be successful in life.''

Tyler Summitt

Position: Shooting guard.

Career marks: Scored his career high of three points against Middle Tennessee State last season and has appeared in seven games in his two-season men's basketball career.

Resume: Spent his freshman year as scout team player in the Lady Vols' program before playing primarily on the scout team for former coach Bruce Pearl last season and Martin this season. Is graduating college in three years with honors in communications, and plans to launch a coaching career.

Cuonzo Martin says: "Tyler embraces his mother's name (Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt) and what she has brought to the sport, but he has his own identity and I think he'll definitely be a coach at this level because he has a great passion and understanding of the game. He sees things on the floor and communicates well with the coaching staff and his teammates.''

I'll never ever forget Renaldo's 14 points and 8 boards against #1 Kansas and the Vols had 4 players suspended for the game. Good luck to all three in the future.

Amen to all in both of the preceding posts. We have all given Cam and Renaldo probably more grief than they deserve, so it's only fair to recognize their positive contributions as well. Good luck in the future to all. I'm sure we will all follow Tyler's future coaching career with great interest and encouragement. Congrats to all three for being good students and overall pretty good guys.
