Status of UT star
depends on Pearl

KNOXVILLE (AP) — The father of Tennessee freshman All-American forward Tobias Harris says he’s unsure where his son will play basketball next season.
Torrel Harris Sr., a former NBA agent, told the Knoxville News Sentinel that his son’s future depends on coach Bruce Pearl’s.
Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton said Wednesday that Pearl’s future as coach is uncertain and could hedge on his job evaluation.
The university is set to go before the NCAA Committee on Infractions in Indianapolis on June 10-11.
The men’s basketball program faces allegations of 10 major violations, including an unethical conduct charge against Pearl for lying to NCAA investigators.
Pearl, the Vols coach the past six seasons, has been working under a Letter of Appointment since learning on Sept. 9, 2010, that his contract was being terminated.

Busch again best
on Bristol course

BRISTOL (AP) — Kyle Busch saw Carl Edwards closing in on his rear bumper and waited for the move that might have knocked him out of the lead.
It never came.
Edwards passed on his best chance to take the win away from Busch on Sunday, and Busch sailed off to his fifth consecutive win at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Busch won both the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series races this weekend.
If Edwards given Busch his best shot, it might have ended different.
“When he got to me that one time, I’m like ‘Oh, man. That was your shot. Nice try. You didn’t get it done,’” Busch smiled.
Busch then pulled away.
