Vol freshman West
not on court yet

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee true freshman point guard Daniel West won’t be participating with the Vols when the team’s official practice begins today.
The school says West is being prevented from practicing due to an eligibility clearance issue and said in a statement it couldn’t comment further because of privacy concerns.
The 6-foot-1, 165-pound West averaged 15 points, 11 assists and six steals as his Saginaw (Mich.) High School won the Class A state championship.
At Tennessee, West was expected to compete with J.P. Prince and Bobby Maze for the starting point-guard position.
