Lady Vol guard
set to transfer

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee guard Jasmine Phillips is leaving the program after one year.
Lady Vols coach Holly Warlick said Saturday that Phillips decided she wanted to go somewhere that could offer her more playing time.
Phillips, a 5-foot-10 guard, played 12 games and averaged 1.9 points and 4.8 minutes for the Lady Vols as a sophomore last season. Phillips had averaged 16.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.7 steals per game for Louisburg (N.C.) College in 2011-12 before transferring to Tennessee.

Titans part ways
with vet lineman

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have waived veteran center Eugene Amano after he spent nine seasons and played 124 games for the franchise.
The Titans announced they made the move Thursday following an organized team activity.
Amano was a seventh-round draft pick out of Southeast Missouri State in 2004, and he wound up starting 68 games for the Titans at left guard and center. He signed a five-year, $26.2 million deal with Tennessee in February 2010. But he tore his triceps last August and spent the season on injured reserve.
The Titans signed three offensive linemen during free agency, including Andy Levitre. They also drafted guard Chance Warmack at No. 10 overall in April.
