Tennessee hoops C to miss Wednesday night game vs. Florida Gulf Coast
No. 22 Tennessee will be without big man Uros Plavic vs. Florida Gulf Coast tonight, according to 247Sports’ Wes Rucker. The 7-foot-1 senior hurt his ankle in Tennessee’s 78-66 loss against Colorado on Nov. 13.
Uros Plavic not warming up with the #Vols so far. Was listed as doubtful and looks like a no-go tonight against Florida Gulf Coast.
