Tennessee: Dominic Woodson won't dress for Kansas State game; focuses on academic work

Tennessee forward Dominic Woodson won't dress for Saturday's game with Kansas State after being excused from team activities this week to focus on academic obligations.

The school issued a statement Saturday saying Woodson wouldn't play against Kansas State because of the missed practice time. The release didn't offer any additional details.

Woodson, a 6-foot-10 sophomore, has averaged 3.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 12.0 minutes in his first season with Tennessee since transferring from Memphis.

He averaged 2.5 points and 1.9 rebounds for Memphis last season.
