  Why not Summitt? Shannon Ryan Chicago Tribune The best option to take over the Tennessee men's basketball program to replace the fired Bruce Pearl actually would be women's coach Pat Summitt, but why would she want to leave the security of her job for this shaky one? In reality, the Volunteers will want to look for a young coach who has a history of winning, can recruit well and energize a fan base that was deflated by the firing of Pearl.

Heading into a game against No. 1 Kansas on Sunday, Tennessee knows it needs every ounce of talent from every player. Now the Volunteers are down to six scholarship players because four were suspended indefinitely after being charged with gun possession. A police report included officers saying they smelled marijuana coming from a car and saw an open container of alcohol during a traffic stop just hours after the team defeated Memphis on Thursday. Senior forward Tyler Smith will be missed the most.

Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl says his Volunteers have been letting their opponents set the game tempo a little too much lately. "It's not been as up as I'd like," he said. "The one good thing is we've been able to win games playing slower as well as playing faster." That could change as the schedule gets tougher for the ninth-ranked Vols (6-1). So Pearl wants his players to be more in charge, starting Friday when they face Middle Tennessee State (3-4) on a neutral Nashville Arena court in the Sun Belt Classic.

Top seeds North Carolina: : The return of Ty Lawson, Danny Green and Wayne Ellington from their NBA draft flirtation makes the Tar Heels a prohibitive favorite to win it all - if Tyler Hansbrough's shin holds up. UCLA: : Ben Howland has led the Bruins to three straight Final Four appearances. They just haven't quite figured out how to finish the deal. Florida: : Billy Donovan isn't rebuilding - he's reloading. If he can find a big man to take over for Marreese Speights, the Gators could be back again.

That doesn't mean they'll see the starting lineup anytime soon, though. "I think those guys are going to be terrific, supportive," coach Bruce Pearl said on Saturday. "They're proud of their friends and their teammates, and they'll work and they'll get ready and they'll stay ready. "The rotations won't change right away, but it will be great to have them there.
