Tennessee men’s basketball signee Robert Hubbs III has been nominated for the 2013 McDonald’s All American Game. The Dyer County (Tenn.) High School senior was one of 800 players included in Thursday’s list of nominees released by McDonald’s.
Hubbs will learn if he’s one of 24 selections for the boys game on February 14 at 5:00 p.m. when the McDonald’s All American Games Selection Show on ESPNU releases the rosters. If picked, he’ll travel to Chicago on April 3 to play at the United Center.
Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin spoke for 21 minutes during his weekly media luncheon Monday. Topics ranged from Tuesday’s test at Kentucky to Jarnell Stokes’ up-and-down production to the Vols’ pace of play.
Among all the quotes, here’s the noteworthy news to emerge. No fluff, just the meat.
Amid Sunday night’s announcement of Jeronne Maymon’s plans to officially redshirt the 2012-13 season and return to Tennessee as a fifth-year senior next season, I confirmed with a member of the UT staff that the Vols are now officially out of scholarships for next year.
