Tennessee forward Dominic Woodson out against Texas Southern


Tennessee basketball’s biggest big man will be sidelined for the Vols’ home opener against Texas Southern tonight.

Sophomore forward Dominic Woodson, who injured his left hand during Sunday’s practice, is not not dressed out for the game.

Woodson did not start in UT’s season opener against VCU, but scored four points and pulled down five rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench.

Joining Woodson on the sideline is graduate transfer guard Ian Chiles, who is nursing a sprained toe. Chiles was wearing a walking boot on his right foot during warmups.

Junior guard Devon Baulkman, who did not travel with the team for the VCU game due to a left shoulder injury, is expected to play tonight.
