Lady Vol star Baugh
has knee repaired

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee forward Vicki Baugh has undergone knee surgery.
Tennessee’s sports medicine director Jenny Moshak says the Tuesday surgery to repair a torn ligament in her left knee was successful, and Baugh will begin rehabilitation immediately.
The 6-foot-4 freshman from Sacramento, Calif., tore her anterior cruciate ligament in the NCAA championship game against Stanford, which the Lady Vols won for their eighth title.
Baugh drove through the key, but went down after hitting a layup with about seven minutes left to play and a 55-44 lead that the Lady Vols wouldn’t relinquish.
Baugh played in all 38 games, averaging 5.3 points per game and four rebounds in 13.1 minutes per contest. She shot a team best 55.2 percent from the field and knocked in 77.8 percent of her free throws.

UT lineman Parker
goes under knife

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee offensive lineman Anthony Parker has undergone surgery on his right knee.
Athletic trainer Jason McVeigh says Tuesday’s procedure was arthroscopic, and Parker should make a full recovery before the Volunteers’ offseason conditioning program begins in June.
The 6-foot-3, 300-pound rising senior from Jonesboro, Ga., had a similar procedure last month on his left knee.
Parker was tagged All-Southeastern Conference and second team All-American by The Associated Press last season.
