Knoxville TN – Tennessee takes on South Carolina at Thompson-Boling Arena on Wednesday night. Tip-off is slated for 5:30pm CT on SEC Network.
The Vols (8-7, 1-2 SEC) come into Wednesday’s game looking to snap a two-game SEC skid, having suffered setbacks against Arkansas and No. 23 Florida last week.
Senior Robert Hubbs III continues to lead UT offensively, averaging 14.7 ppg to go along with 4.7 rpg — the second-best mark on the team.
Tampa, FL – Motorists saw little change at the pump last week. Compared to a week ago, average prices remained the same in Florida, and rose 1-cent in Georgia and Tennessee.
“Frozen gas prices are a good sign that we could soon see some relief at the pump,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Now that the holidays are over and cold weather is moving across much of the country, gasoline demand should drop, and prices could too.”
