Rocky Top roundup

After hitting just 4 of 13 shots in his Rocky Top League opener on Wednesday, one Tennessee Vol found his stroke Friday night.

Skylar McBee drained 8 of 16 shots from 3-point range and scored 26 points in helping a hot-shooting News-Sentinel squad beat Ralph Brown & Associates 106-96 at Bearden High gym. Vol teammate Jordan McRae had a big night, as well, hitting 16 of 28 shots en route to 41 points.

Tennessee senior Renaldo Woolridge scored 22 points to pace Ralph Brown. Brandon Lopez, a UT invited walk-on from Knoxville's Austin-East High School, chipped in 11 points.

LARRY SMITH INSURANCE 113, RICHARDSON 112

Tennessee senior Cameron Tatum scored 25 points and former Vol Dane Bradshaw 12 but it wasn't enough to give Richardson a victory. Tony White Jr., son of the former UT standout, scored on a driving three-point play in the closing seconds to lift Larry Smith to the win.

CHOICE SPINE 94, DeROYAL 90

Vol sophomore Trae Golden put together another strong performance, scoring 34 points to lead Choice Spine past DeRoyal Industries. Tennessee center Kenny Hall produced 32 points in the losing cause while holding UT teammate Jeronne Maymon to 8 points.
