GVX TV | Fast Break: UT vs LSU
Tennessee freshman guard Robert Hubbs, who has battled a persistent shoulder injury, should be on the court when the Vols open SEC play Tuesday night.
The Vols (9-4) will face the LSU Tigers (9-3) at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in Baton Rouge (TV: ESPN, 7 p.m.)
Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin said there were “no signs” that Hubbs wouldn’t play against LSU. The highly rated freshman didn’t play in Tennessee’s blowout win over Tusculum last Saturday.
"He's fine. He practiced yesterday,” Martin said Monday during his weekly luncheon with media. “There was not a lot of contact, but the little contact we did do, he was fine."
LSU is coming off a disappointing home loss to Rhode Island. Tennessee has won four its last five SEC road games.
"The rim's still the same. It's just a different building. Our approach doesn't change,” Martin said.
The Vols have won five consecutive games against LSU, including three in a row in Baton Rouge.
